KALOO KALLAY FOR VALDIGUIÉ

This is the story of a grape nearly lost in time, visiting us in 3 installments, the grape of Harvest Past, Present and Future…. 

Although our consistent message in Seven Percent is clamoring for more plantings and more champions for this grape or that, this particular variety is clearly not the first that comes to mind for many. Do not mistake that statement for a lack of genuine enthusiastic love for Valdiguié, however, it just seems right to point out that the set of true believers is minute. Often we can point to the old world when discussing the potential of a grape variety to flourish here in California, not just in the vineyards but where what is easily thought of as most important… in the marketplace. But the all but orphaned anomaly that is Valdiguié may just remain where it stands today for the foreseeable future; as the nerdy and rare delight that is and, at the very least, super fun to say. And to drink.
