Welcome to the Tasting Room
I appreciate you stopping by for a moment. If we were in my grandfather's house we would be sitting at the kitchen table sipping on a glass of wine and eating some pasta. What better way to enjoy each other's company? I love talking to friends about their passions. I enjoy sharing a glass of wine.
Step into the tasting room... It is my pleasure to introduce you to Passaggio Wines.
If you have never had a glass of Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay, you are in for a treat. This Chardonnay is fermented and aged in stainless steel. It is a brilliant pale straw color with layers of melon, mango, lemon lime and a robust minerality on the nose. The clean lingering finish has layers of citrus, lemon lime, hints of stone fruit, and is balanced with minerality.
It pairs well with most seafood dishes and chicken dishes. Go ahead and enjoy a bottle today with friends and family...
Your next taste is our 2011 Pinot Grigio. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this wine represents the New Generation style of the famous Italian Pinot Grigio. It shows wonderful layers of lemon lime, melon, pineapple, slight yellow apple, citrus, with a hint of floral notes, wet stone and strong minerality on the nose. On the palate you will find layers of robust citrus, pear, yellow apple, and enticing minerality with a crisp long finish.
It pairs well with grilled or baked chicken dishes, Asian dishes, and pizza or pasta dishes.
The next bottle is our delicious 2011 Passaggio Rosé. I love this wine! It is a saignee style of 82% Dry Creek Zinfandel and 18% Napa Cabernet. Each was fermented and aged separately in stainless steel then blended before bottling. This wine is a beautiful translucent vermilion color with layers of raspberry tea, pomegranate, slight strawberry, hint of anise and a nice minerality on the nose. Layers of bright cherry, pomegranate tea, strawberry rhubarb, with fresh acidity and a long finish. This wine is awesome by itself or with grilled foods. This is a great wine to enjoy sitting on the deck with friends and family.
The 2011 UNMARKED Pinot Noir was sourced from a vineyard in Napa on the cusp of Carneros. This wine is a beautiful garnet color in the glass. It offers intense seductive aromas of black cherry, spice, slight cola and earth tones. On the palate you will find dark cherry, slight raspberry with a hint of spices and black tea. A smooth texture, slight tannins and a balanced acidity. Pinot Noir may be one of the world's most versatile food wines. This wine goes great with poultry dishes, lamb, pork and even vegetarian dishes. Enjoy it around your table with friends and family.
