The onetime Schrader Ranch, purchased in 1993, was originally planted in pears. Grapes that follow pear trees have to work a lot harder. Instead of focusing on vibrant leaves and shoots, they push their roots deep into the ground in search of more nutrients and water. The rest of their energy goes straight into the grapes.
The Rivino vineyard now has 7 different grape varietals: chardonnay, merlot, cabernet franc, viognier, pinot blanc, syrah, and sangiovese. Rivino is known for their “Boujee Bubbly”, two zero dosage, brut natural style sparkling wines. One blanc de blanc, one rosé. Incredible taste, bright and dry, with tiny active bubbles that keep going all day long.
Coming June 19, check out “Bacon, Boujee and Blues” at the winery.
This incredible celebration of the greatest of all meats is back this Father’s Day!
