"A light refreshing white wine, this is made by picking 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay on the same day and then pressing and cofermenting them together. Structured and lightweight, it dazzles in tart high-toned acidity, adorned in flavors of fresh lemon, apple and melon with a flinty stony finish." - 90pts. Wine Enthusiast

Alexis Iaconis, the former sommelier of Barn Diva in Healdsburg and the Meadowood Resort in St Helena, started this project with her winemaking husband Matt.  This Vin Clair is a white wine, and the reason we stress that, is because more than half of it is made from Pinot Noir grown in Yountville! The grapes are pressed and then the white juice is extracted from the red grapes without any time on the skins, where the color normally would come from after a soak. It's then blended with Napa Valley Chardonnay and immediately sent to tank and then bottled. 

TASTING NOTES 

If you were to taste this wine out of black glasses, you might swear you either had a red wine or a rose, as the fruit has an interesting hint of white cherry and raspberry with a nice leesy creamy texture from the Chardonnay.  A bright, delicious, super cool, summer wine that will definitely start conversations at your next party.

Blend: 52% Pinot Noir, 48% Chardonnay

THE STORY TO KNOW

In 2011, this all began as a single idea - or rather a dream. Alexis and Matt Iaconis envisioned producing wines that were true and pure expressions of both site and vintage. Brick & Mortar committed themselves to making wines that they were proud to share with those closest to them. They have accomplished this dream with their award-winning Brick & Mortar wines.
