  • "Castello di Amorosa trips north to Mendocino County and Anderson Valley’s hospitable terroir and brings back a triumphant representative. This Gewurztraminer has the lychee, tangerine and spice that are signatures of the area, and finishes with a lively pop of ginger. Only a few producers keep their commitment to this variety alive, and when you serve this one up at a nice Thai dinner you’ll be glad that the Castello is one of them. Well done!"

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino County. We pick after the grapes have developed a pink to reddish hue, and the aromas are effuse with rose petals, cinnamon spice and exotic lychee fruit. We handle the fruit very carefully, avoiding as much as possible some of the more bitter tannins found in the skins. It is cold fermented in stainless steel and bottled in the spring. Gewürztraminer is a grape I am familiar with, as it was one of the first white grapes I made into wine when I started in the wine business 38 years ago. It is delightful with strong cheeses, spicy Asian dishes and sauced white meats. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
This wine's wonderful, spicy finish makes it a great match for Thai or Indian cuisine, spicy or well seasoned dishes or with aged and cured, smoked meats.
