Uvaggio Vermentino
Uvaggio Wines
United States - California - Lodi

About twenty years ago we had a hard time even spelling Vermentino and today it is emerging as one of the more popular Italian white grapes. It is even catching on here in California, thanks in part to Uvaggio's efforts, because it seems to them the perfect white grape.

It possess the utility of many dry and non-barrel aged whites but perhaps with greater versatility and certainly more charm – not too thin, not too tart, not too herbal - in other words it lacks an Achilles’ heel - supple and accessible, without any challenges.

The 2018 botting showcases two decades of growing this variety in Lodi, across multiple sites spanning four different sub AVAs.

Wine Type
100% Vermentino
The free-run juice was cool fermented using a fruit enhancing yeast selection and was without a malolactic conversion. Post fermentation it was racked twice followed by a light fining, then racked and filtered prior to bottling.
724 cases (9-liter cases)

Mediterranean, milder Southeast Asian, vegetarian, seafood or good old American Farm-to-Table.

2016 Uvaggio Vermentino - 90 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Herbaceous aromas and bright citrus flavors give an almost-electric charge to this light-bodied, crisp and appetizing wine. Aromas of snap peas, parsley and fresh-cut grass lead to lemon and grapefruit flavors and a tingly mouthfeel. It's a perfect summer-to-fall drink. - JIM GORDON"
