Regular price $30.00

Maker: Broc Cellars

Grape: Nero d’Avola

Origin: Fox Hill Vineyard, Mendocino, California

Farming Practices: Organic

Why we love it:

Who: Founded by Chris Brockway, Berkeley-based Broc represents wines that are site specific, only using organic/biodynamic grapes from marginal climates, and minimal intervention in the cellar.

What/How: It’s not well known that there is Nero d’Avola planted in California, but from 15-year-old vines of Fox Hill Vineyard near Ukiah, this is a classic homage to some of the great Neros of Sicily.

Tasting Notes: Packed with bright, intense fruit; plum and pepper on the nose. 10% of the grapes are fermented in terracotta vessels for added complexity. 

Pairs With: Pairs well with pasta dishes, gamey meats (as well as board games), barbecue with friends.
