Matthiasson Refosco, hailing from the misty, breezy confines of Napa Valley, USA, is a delightful embodiment of balance between fruity exuberance and earthy depth, featuring plush, gentle tannins that make it an absolute joy for home consumption. Cultivated in the cool, coastal-influenced climate at the MATTHIASSON vineyard in Western Oak Knoll, these Refosco vines, grafted onto mature Merlot stocks in 2008, bask in organic care amidst fruit trees and flowering bushes, creating a haven for beneficial insects.

This 100% Refosco, a grape originating from Friuli, Italy, and Slovenia, is a rare gem in California, delivering a truly unique and harmonious wine-drinking experience.
