Yountville Sémillon 2014MADE BY DIRTY AND ROWDY FAMILY WINERY IN CALISTOGA, CALIFORNIA
This crisp white wine is a fascinating example of the best of California natural winemaking, made from 100% Sémillon grapes grown on organic vineyards. It's quite dry with an earthy acidity, and powerful enough to stand up to strong flavors.
Dirty & Rowdy loves to experiment, combining traditional methods with new ideas. After harvest, some of these grapes are fermented with the skins still on, and these are split between a steel tank and a mix of American and French oak casks. The rest of the grapes are fermented without the skins, in a concrete "egg." Blending these two separate fermentations just before bottling maximizes the complexity of this crisp, elegant wine.

We love a bottle with Mexican food – it's a perfect match for the rich, warm and even spicy flavors.
