2022 Alpina Jacquere & Chardonnay
Bring a chilled bottle to your next tailgate
Maybe you go for the sports. Maybe you show up for the snacks. It’s easy to make the tailgate pregame feel like the main event with a little prep, so pack this bottle. Straight from the lower slopes of Mont Granier, its grapes were picked at the ideal balance between fresh and full flavor—think maximum crunch, saline minerality, and electrifying acidity (thanks to 80% Jacquere in the blend) with the familiar creamy and slightly nutty finish of Chardonnay. Want more dirt on this wine? Its vines reach deep into colluvial, calcareous soils—the kind that cracks from above and tumbles to slopes below—regulating vine growth and giving great drainage vibes.
Wild Flowers, Bosc Pear, White Peach, Dried Honey, and Wet Stone
