Virginie Boone explores Rhone Valley varietals like Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre in California wine country, which  hold unexpected excitement. Check out our Sonoma Mountain Grenache, from Winemaker and Co-Owner Mike Sullivan family’s vineyard.

“Beloved for its Russian River and Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Benovia remains true to this grape from winemaker/co-owner Mike Sullivan’s own family vineyard, which is grown at elevation. Fruity and earthy in equal measure, it thrives in lavender, sage, dried herb and white pepper before a midpalate of garrigue, game and strawberry appear.”
