Our Solera is a non-vintage wine in which a portion of our Vidal Blanc is taken and aged in the sun, then back-blended with the original vintage (established in 2000). This fractional blending and aging method is called “Solera,” and the finished product is similar to a Spanish style of Oloroso sherry. The Vidal is siphoned into five-gallon glass casks and placed on the roof of the winery where it is exposed to direct sunlight and heat, which oxidizes the wine and darkens the color. Brought down to the cellar for aging over the winter, the finished product is blended with the remainder of the solera from the previous year, and a portion is held back for the next vintage. With each production, the wine gets older and older; with each bottling containing a fraction of each previous release and now in its 14th year, this batch contains almost a decade and a half of hand-crafted tradition! Serve room temperature with raised game pie.
