Mandola Vineyard is located in Driftwood, Texas with soils comprised mostly of limestone similar to the Mediterranean soils where the white wine varietal originated. The terroir is nutrient-rich, lending to the high quality of the grapes. Aged in a mix of 70% neutral and 30% new French oak, the light oak influence expresses the minerality of the hard limestone where the grapes are grown. Our partnership with the Mandola family continues to hold strong as it has for many years and we remain the exclusive farmers of their vineyards.

This Vermentino, made from fruit farmed in the Driftwood area, is fragrant with aromas of morning jasmine, honey, and ripe stone fruit. With a broad palate, this wine offers a different style than other examples of this Italian variety in Texas. On the palate, rich flavors of apple, peach, and apricot meet for a clean finish with a touch of lychee fruit.
