2022 St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Virtu

Blend: 56% Semillon and 44% Sauvignon from our Dollarhide Estate Vineyard in Napa Valley.

Tasting Notes: Brilliant pale yellow hues present this white blend. Aromas offer notes of pink grapefruit, lemon grass, and kiwi with an undercurrent of seductive toasted French oak. Flavors of citrus including lemon and key lime, and dried peaches are focused and encouraged with creamy, toasted oak. This is a terrific white wine with great texture. Enjoy!

92 Points, Wine Spectator – “A succulent, expressive and elegant white, with notes of pear blossom, marzipan and makrut lime leaf that lead to a core of tangerine, mango and ruby grapefruit notes. A hint of marmalade lingers on the long, juicy finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now.” -MaryAnn Worobiec, Nov. 2023

Growing Winter Ornamental Cabbage and Flowering Kale

Adding ornamental cabbage or flowering kale to your winter garden can provide a vivid burst of red, pink, white or purple color. They require minimal care and withstand the ice and cold of winter.  We asked our Estate Horticulturalist, Vanessa Giampaoli, a few questions about growing this beautiful type of cabbage for decorative purposes during the cold winter months.

Is it hard to grow ornamental cabbage?

Vanessa: An ornamental cabbage takes the same amount of effort as any other brassica (cauliflower, broccoli or kale) in the seedling stage, however once finally transplanted, they do not need much attention besides watching for pests and irrigation. Ornamental cabbages can also be called flowering kale, so if you have trouble finding seeds, try flowering kale!
