St. Avalo - Blog Posts
Hello Friends, Family, Wine Aficionados & Everybody else who shares Bacchus’ affinity for grape.
Welcome to the St. Avalo newsletter—where our aim is to keep you abreast of the latest on quality wine & quality times. We wouldn’t be here without you & we’re beyond excited that you’re here.
St. Avalo is based on a love story & love is what keeps us making wine. We’re excited to share that we’ve gone live online & we’re inviting you all to grab a taste of the Santa Ynez Valley—straight to your door.
The first of our organic estate wines were bottled 1 year ago, and we’re now opening our cellars up to non-wine club members. We hope you have a chance to #TasteTheValley as we can offer wines that rival what you have tasted from Liguria, Sardegna & Toscana.
In celebratory spirit & anticipation for our 2023 bottling, we’d like to extend 10% OFF and FREE shipping with PROMO CODE: THOR. Make your wine selections from our website & be sure to keep in touch with us on your favorite social channel.
As many of you know, last Spring we bottled the first of our estate wines from the 2021 harvest. After letting the wines cure from bottle shock, we did our best to share our wines with all of our Friends+Family around the world & were very pleased with all the warm feedback we had! Being the curious ones we are, we sought out an expert opinion last September to taste our wines & give us some professional feedback.
If you’ve followed St. Avalo for some time, you’ll likely have already tried our 2021 Vermentino. A somewhat lesser-known Italian grape that is indigenous to Sardinia, we surprisingly have a similar climate & terroir here in the Santa Ynez Valley to the Italian island. Coming in as our top-rated wine of 2021 was our Vermentino with a score of 89! Here is what WineEnthusiast had to say:
“Crisp apple, lemon blossom and lime peel aromas make for a zesty nose on this bottling of a promising grape for the region. There’s pear-like ripeness to the palate, which shows a light textural edge.” - Matt Kettmann
This feedback is warmly welcomed & we couldn’t ask for much more from our inaugural harvest & bottling.
To share in our excitement over this news, we’re extending a promotion to all of the St. Avalo family to order a few bottles for your home cellar. Use promo code “WE20" for 20% OFF your next order & FREE shipping when you order 3 or more bottles of St. Avalo on our online store!
Until next time,
