Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Hello, Winers!

Welcome to April. We're well into 2014 now. It's going nicely, except for the awful parts. And hey, for those awful parts, at least there's wine.

It's good for the awesome parts of 2014, too.

Features

2012 Nacina Riesling, Tondré Vineyards, Santa Lucia Highlands 750ml 5-Pack

Astonishingly fresh with intense yet delicate notes of melon, honey, and well-spiced ripe grapefruit. Enormous concentration, plush flavors of ripe apricot and pear, perfectly balanced by acidity and a long finish.

History and Tradition: Nacina means “The Way” in Croatian. The Tudor family has been growing grapes on the Dalmatian Coast's island of Hvar for hundreds of years. In 1917 Dan “Dinko” Tudor boarded a steamer from the Istria Peninsula to Ellis Island, NYC. Settling in Delano, California he followed his passion of growing table grapes building one of the largest vineyard operations by the 1960's. First cousins, Christian Tudor and Dan Tudor started Tudor Wines in 2000. This Nacina wine is a tribute to a tradition of always following one's own path and passion in life – all while seeking happiness and spreading goodwill on the way.

The Vintage: 2012 was a very cool vintage allowing the Riesling to retain its acidity while developing deeply complex flavors. Fermented in stainless steel at low temperature over the period of four months the wine slowing reached the desired balance of alcohol and residual sugars at which point it was halted. This wine will continue to develop in the bottle for many years. Enjoy with a wide variety of foods, including spicy Asian dishes as well as rich and savory French and German.

Every year our grandfather Tudor used to make wine for his friends and family. It’s a tradition. The Tudor family has been growing grapes and lavender – and making wine on the Island of Hvar in Croatia – for over 2,000 years. The Tudors began growing grapes in California early in the 1900′s and continue to operate one of the largest table grape vineyards in the country.

In an increasingly mechanized world, there are still a few handcrafted products that stand out. Fine wine is one of them. At Tudor Wines, we select fruit from family-owned vineyards and transform it into wine using traditional techniques. These include small fermentations mixed by hand and aging in French barrels. The resulting wine has a purity of expression that cannot be duplicated on a larger scale.
