As California wines go, our wines are somewhat atypical: we don't produce high alcohol wines, we don't like 'fruit bombs'. Only subtle oak is OK. Acidity is higher than most in order make them food friendly. Balance is everything here at Avanguardia.

Please note that our white blends undergo extend aging on the yeast lees, and this seems to provide an advantage to the wines' ability to age in the bottle, so don't be concerned about what may seem to be an older than ideal vintage date for a white wine.


Varietal Composition: Varying anywhere from two thirds Mondeuse and and one-third Carmine to around half and half. Mondeuse is an indigenous red variety from the foothills of the French Alps with deep color and plum or cranberry fruit; Carmine is a University of California two-generation cross: Carignane X Cabernet Sauvignon crossed again with Merlot. Carmine is also dark, with somewhat intense flavors.
