Understanding important historical context, and what it means as we read today’s headlines, is why NPR’s Throughline podcast was launched. As you pour this elegant California white, take time to appreciate Santa Barbara County’s rich history. This beautiful region started out as a haven for missionaries and farmers, with grapevines only introduced here in the early 1960s (although many missions grew grapes and made wine for personal use). Today, Santa Barbara produces some of California’s loveliest wines—as you’ll taste in this fresh, citrusy release…

It showcases just how well Vermentino and Grenache Blanc (two star white grape varieties in Europe) thrive in sunny California. Prized for its fruity aromas and fresh acidity, Italian native Vermentino is “a dazzling white grape with bright flavors that shine,” says top critic Olly Smith. Hailing from northern Spain (where it’s called Garnacha Blanca), Grenache Blanc is the perfect partner, adding a lovely weight to balance the Vermentino’s vibrancy. They both ripen to perfection in the brilliant California sunshine, yielding a wine with concentrated and expressive aromas.

Look forward to zesty citrus fruit, subtle spice and wild herb notes. Deliciously dry and crisp, Throughline makes a perfect patio sipper and is equally tasty with salads, fish, white meats and more.
