Our wine of the week is The Folly!
A blend of Aromella, Valvin Muscat and Vignoles grapes, The Folly is a medium-bodied, white wine with honeyed peach overtones and beautiful tangerine spice flavors. This dry wine is part of our Winemaker Series, which features select wines that are carefully crafted by our St. James Winery Cellar crew. These wines are handmade in small batches and feature the best-of-the-best varietals and blocks of grapes.
In the words of our Executive Winemaker, Andrew Meggitt, “There are many definitions of the word ‘Folly’ – ‘lack of good sense and foresight’ or ‘an extravagant picturesque building erected to suit a fanciful taste.’ Both might define the rationale for attempting to make this wine. After travelling in the Provence region of France where I tasted the dry, full-bodied, fresh and fruity wines, I wanted one of my own to remember my travels. I hope this wine will take you on a journey of your own. Enjoy with good food and good friends.”
Each season, our St. James Winery Cellar Crew selects the best grapes within our vineyards and carefully crafts them into small batches made for wine connoisseurs, as part of the Winemaker Series. The Folly is a limited release wine that is exclusively available at the St. James Winery Tasting Room and online, while supplies last.
