All-New All-Different Wine.Woot Details

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.

Any Time is Wine Time! Especially Right Now.

Go ahead: try to explain to your less vino-inclined friends and family what a Wine Woot Off is. Watch as their eyes widen in horror while you describe queing up with a bunch of strangers to eagerly snatch up bottle after bottle in a 24-hour festival of wine gluttony. Then smile as they ask you again for the URL.

Features

2010 Roussanne, Sonoma County 750ml 4-Pack

The aroma is intense and complex, very floral (honeysuckle and rose petal), along with citrus peel, vanilla and wet stone.  The texture is supple and creamy without heaviness.  Flavors of citrus, green apple and a mineral note lead to a wonderfully long finish.  The balance is exquisite, neither watery nor cloying, neither sweet nor tart.  This vintage of Roussanne should really shine at the table, matching well with a broad variety of cuisine, including spicy dishes.

Roussanne is a variety that has been grown in the Northern Rhône appellations of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, St. Joseph and St. Peray for centuries.  A century ago, White Hermitage was considered the best white wine in France.  It is less widely planted in the Northern Rhône these days because of its susceptibility to mildew, rot and other viticultural problems such as poor fruit set, and is often blended with Marsanne in those appellations.

Winery Details

Wellington Vineyards

Founded:
1986
Owner:
Peter Wellington
Location:
Glen Ellen, CA
Wellington Vineyards is owned Peter Wellington. Peter's father John purchased the winery site in 1986. At the time, it consisted of 20 acres of old vines and a few decrepit old fruit and nut trees. Replanting of part of the old vineyard and orchard started in 1988. The winery was completed in time for the 1989 crush. We grow approximately half the grapes we use and purchase the remainder, primarily from small, unique vineyards.
 
The estate vineyards consist of 21 acres, 8 of which are 85 to 117 years old. There are 24 different varieties in the old vineyard, with the most common being Zinfandel, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache and Syrah. In addition, there are 10 acres of eleven to sixteen year old vines that consist of Merlot, Chardonnay, Marsanne, and Syrah. We grow more Merlot than anything else. Three more acres were replanted in 2001, predominantly to Syrah, Zinfandel and Grenache.
