Sangius Jovis, or "Blood of Jupiter" is the literal name for Sangiovese in Italian. "Jove" being short for Jupiter, or Jovis in Latin, is the name of the Roman god of sky and thunder and king of all gods in ancient Roman religion and mythology. Jovis is also the father of Bacchus, the god of wine, further illustrating the significance of this vitis vinifera grapevine in Roman culture. Sangiovese originates from Tuscany, Italy and has now found a new home with similar microclimate in the Santa Ynez Valley of California. In perfect vintages, the Blood of Jove runs through our veins and this 2017 Sangiovese is no exception.

Grown in some of the rarest terroir in Santa Rita Hills AVA, the Chardonnay is grown in pure diatomaceous earth creating chalky minerality and bright, vibrant acidity. Flavors of white peach, lemon, gooseberry and unripe golden apple with citrous blossom on the nose.
