St Remedius Dry Muscat Canelli
Regular price $25.00
Winemaker: Robert Pintacsi
Appellation: Napa, California
Grape Varieties: Muscat Canelli
Over the past few years our dry Muscat Canelli has become one of our most popular wines. In 2020 we sourced it from a certified sustainable vineyard in the Clements Hills AVA. This wine was given a 48 hour cold soak (skin contact) before pressing. The wine fermented to complete dryness (zero residual sugar) with indigenous yeasts in neutral French oak barrels. Made with minimal intervention and bottled without fining filtration.
Tasting Notes: An explosion of melon, citrus blossom, and tropical fruit on the nose and a crisp and refreshing palette, this dry white wine is definitely a porch pounder. With low(ish) alcohol, no sugar, and minimal use of sulfur, you can enjoy this wine all day long and only worry about who's gonna drive, not about a throbbing sugar induced headache.
St. Romedius Wine was founded by my wife, Mlli, and I in Napa, CA where we are raising our three young sons, two dogs, and 6 chickens. Our family is a unique mix of two very interesting cultures, Hungarian and Punjabi. This means there are more than three languages spoken in the house and the food is never boring.
Milli and I, though both having grown up in the same East Bay city of Danville, met in 2007 while studying abroad in Florence, Italy and fell in love bonding over travel, food, and wine while exploring our way through Europe. Since before we met, Milli had been an avid cook, with a very sharp pallet and a strong interest in languages, new foods, wine, and travel. Though I grew up in a Hungarian family, exposed to wine from an early age, it wasn’t until after I experienced the pleasures of the Italian lifestyle while living in Florence, that I dedicated myself to making winemaking my career path.
Fast forward through many harvests, countless internships, a degree from UC Davis Viticulture and Enology, an Indian Wedding, a Hungarian wedding, a legal wedding (almost forgot that part), a variety of wine production positions throughout Napa Valley, and we arrive in 2015. While I was working as the assistant winemaker at Far Niente and Dolce wineries, we wanted to create something through which we could share our love of delicious wine, food, and culture. Luckily that same year a friend introduced me to the owners of the Buckeye Ranch Vineyard in Lafayette who were looking for someone to make wine out of their beautiful vineyard. Thus St. Romedius Wine was born and ever since we've been trying to make wines that are true to our beliefs and values as well as fun and delicious.
