Aglow

A unique take on a desert wine. Ripe fruit, baking spices, and just enough sweetness you set your heart aglow.
Description

The best pairing for this wine may just be good friends and a warm fire. When you're sipping spiced honey and flowers, that's enough said.

Aglow is all about ripe fruit in all its lush glory—with an edge. Deep, ripe apricots and tangerines with silky drizzled honey is its essence. However, we fermented this wine on its skins—just like a red. So called “orange” wines have a beautiful golden glow and amazing flavor complexity. Think spice cake in a glass. This is NOT your Great Aunt Tilly's cordial.

THE VINEYARD

While Dick Cooper is recognized as the master of Barbera, his vineyard's sunny days, cool nights, and rocky red soil are ideal for many of Southern Europe's favorite grape varieties.

FOOD PAIRINGS

This wine is all about dessert! Whether you prefer a tangerine cream tart, Medjool dates and salty Parmesan curls, or creamy bleu cheese drizzled with sage honey on a slice of walnut bread, you'll have a memorable partner for your favorite sweet treat.
