Planted in 1854, the fruit from the Deaver Ranch in Amador County is one of the oldest vineyards in California and one of the last vestiges of the Mission grape in the California. Originally from Spain, it was brought to California in the 1700s by Franciscan missionaries. The Mission grape, also known as País, or Listán Prieto in the Canary Islands, was successfully planted in California and used for table, sacramental, and fortified wines. Mission is hardy, resistant to drought, and prefers hot and dry climates.
Wild and almost savage-like berry aromas spring from the glass along with baking spices and pepper. Super crunchy, fresh, and delicious on the palate, my País is super drinkable. -390 bottles produced.
