The hens in residence at Trillium Vineyard not only provide us with fresh, free range eggs, but their lively antics bring smiles to our faces. They strut, prance, and dance through life with a contagious joie de vivre.
We thought it fitting to name this delightful off dry Riesling wine after our pompous little flock. Underneath the light, fun, easy to drink nature of the wine lies a deep and elegant complexity. The grapes were grown in California where warm sunny days pair with cool nights to provide just the right climate for the Riesling grapes to thrive. The wine is fruity and lively with a heady aroma. Its acidity makes it an excellent accompaniment to food.
