Product Description:

"In her travels to find a California wine that would over-deliver for its price, Lia Tolaini-Banville met with countless winemakers and tasted through a lot of uninspiring wine so that you wouldn't have to. Eventually she met with a winemaker who had deep ties to the Napa, Sonoma and Lodi growers he works with every day, and who allow him to hand select fruit in their vineyards every vintage. His understanding of those terroirs and the results that can be produced in blending them resulted in a fragrant wine with depth, balance and complexity. For the label, Lia chose to use the whimsical piece "The Golden Bridge" by artist Francis Kirk.

The Trip is composed of Chardonnay sourced from the Lodi AVA in Central Valley, California. The wine undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats. Full-malolactic is performed while 20% of the wine undergoes maturation in used French oak barrels. The wine is lightly fined and filtered." - Importer
