Featured in July 2020 Bottle Club!

Chris Christensen is a gem of a man. Hailing from Iowa, this midwesterner grew up with a love of Shakespeare and an urge to do something big. As a lot of farmboys are want to do, he moved west to be amongst the vines nearly 20 years ago.  After years of working in wine production, Chris released the first Bodkin bottles- something to call his own- in 2011. Now, he's known as one of the renegade New California winemakers specializing in delicious, hand-crafted, fruit-driven wines at really great prices. He says he's a "baller on a budget", and we are into it! 

This wine is a fun one. Made from a blend of white and red grapes from around the beautiful Northern California vineyards, crossing county lines so Chris can find some of the most beautiful, sustainably farmed fruit. When your vineyard blend crosses county lines, the North Coast AVA is used (Fruit for this AVA can only be from Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Solano Counties). The aromas of berries and citrus blossoms on the nose meet ruby red grapefruit and fresh-baked brioche on the palate, which makes for pure pleasure in the glass. 

We love this with buttermilk fried chicken, honey-corn bread, and summer salads with stone fruit and fresh chevre.
