California Whites

  • Price $36.00

This trio of whites will please any white wine lover looking to discover a wider range of grape varieties with European origins that are crafted by cutting-edge California winemakers--think of it as Old World elegance meets New World bravado. The Le P'tit Paysan Verdelho blend is a tribute to the aromatic white wines of the Iberian Peninsula, while the Tendu Vermentino and the Birichino Malvasia Bianca are varieties with Italian roots and decidedly California styling.

  • 2017 Le P'tit Paysan Verdelho Blend: Le P’tit Paysan White is a Portuguese wine in disguise, “with a California-sunshine polish to it,” Ian Brand says. He has made more wines with Blue Apron than anyone else, and this white epitomizes why. Nerdiness, obsession or a combination of the two drove Ian to study the soil and climate of the few California vineyards that grow Verdelho and Albariño (grape varieties from Portugal and Spain, respectively). He discovered it is possible to make a wine as delicious as any from the Iberian Peninsula—and that’s delightful with our light, aromatic dishes. This wine is a blend of 90% Verdelho and 10% Albariño.
  • 2017 Tendu Vermentino: Steve Matthiasson has a champion’s pedigree: He put in time at Napa luminaries Stag’s Leap, Spottswoode and Araujo, then went on to be named Winemaker of the Year by both the San Francisco Chronicle and Food & Wine for his high-end, low-production reds and whites. His label Tendu, a French play on “tension” (winemaker lingo for “juicy”), focuses on overlooked vineyards. Steve found one he could use to make a Vermentino as bright and delicious as any from Italy. Tendu Vermentino is a classically styled version of Italy’s refreshing white wines from the island of Sardinia, but with a California attitude.
  • 2017 Birichino Malvasia Bianca: Alex Krause and John Locke, who trained under famous and famously eccentric winemaker Randall Grahm (California’s original wine maverick), were asked to make a Malvasia intended for the Canadian market. Their convention-bucking Birichino—Italian for “naughty” or “mischievous”—became a hit on both sides of the border for its unrestrained aromatic intensity. Birichino Malvasia Bianca is very perfumy, the rambunctious cousin of a Malvasia from northern Italy’s Friuli region. The wine also has a viscous feel similar to that of wines from France’s Alsace region.
