Cam Confidential
Lake County is simply becoming a "go-to" appellation for CHW for not only their fantastic expressions of some diverse and delicious varietals but also the great values they represent. This wine is the continuation of a program we have been running for a few years now with a Lake County grower who thought that selling his high-quality fruit to larger companies (who just back-blended it into more innocuous cuvées and still paid him the same price as the lower quality fruit) was, ahem, “problematic.” Of course, after winemaker Sam saw the dirt, we were convinced to partner up with this gentleman to bring you some fantastic Lake County wines.
