Growing up in small town California means being able to enjoy the Simple Life. We walk downtown and shop at family-owned grocery stores, we cook with fresh vegetables and meat from local farms, and we drink wine made by our family and friends who have lived here for generations.
Our 2015 Simple Life Chardonnay is brimming with tropical fruit, orange zest, apricot and floral aromas. A vibrant, lively acidity perfectly frames the lime, tropical fruit and orange blossom flavors and fresh-cut pineapple finish. This medium bodied wine is crisp, elegant and an inviting expression of Chardonnay’s true fruit nature. Some fans of our Simple Life wine think of it as ‘the Chardonnay for non-Chardonnay drinkers.’
Enjoy this beauty with grilled chicken, pork or pasta in a creamy sauce, salmon cakes or dishes with mild curry sauces. We invite you to also savor Simple Life Chardonnay on its own.
Our 2014 Simple Life Pinot Noir is garnet in color, aromas of luscious cherries, nutmeg and savory herbs bring the wine to life. Bright flavors of cranberry and ripe plum intermingle with sage and warm baking spices. Notes of vanilla from 100% French oak aging provide a lovely background for the complex and supple tannins. This wine has perfect balance between its dark fruit character and lively acidity, which makes it an easy pairing for a variety of foods.
Try pairing with grilled salmon and green beans, pork loin spiced with oregano or creamy polenta with wild mushrooms.
