Lovely, interesting, refreshing and fantastic Vermentino from a single vineyard along the Mokelumne River, save 43% on the Avivo Vermentino.
Vermentino is a delicious varietal primarily grown in Italy and Southern France. You won't find many plantings here in the USA yet, but today we have a stellar example from Ledbetter Family Vineyards in Lodi, California.
We offered the 2018 vintage of this wine last January and the good news is that the 2019 is at least as good AND our deal price is even better! Just like that wine the grapes for the 2019 Davero Avivo Vermentino come from s ingle vineyard that is farmed biodynamically. Here's how the winery describes their philosophy:
Avivo is the result of decades of farming and winemaking experience, coupled with a thoughtful revisiting of a seminal question: what should we be growing here in California? It is surprising to discover that every one of California’s wine regions shares a Mediterranean climate - a climate quite different from northern France. This led Avivo to focus on grape varieties that are native to central Italy: and to their delight, they have thrived here.
That has facilitated Avivo’s ability to practice Biodynamic farming, which yields better, more balanced fruit while sequestering significant amounts of CO2 - and leaving both the farms and the planet in better shape for future generations. (Even the corks are made from sugar cane residue which are carbon-negative!) Avivo’s climate-appropriate varieties and regenerative farming results in authentic wines with personality – delicious, food-friendly, and good for the planet.
Typically, only available at or near the very reasonable SRP of $20, our 1-day deal reduces that price substantially.

Vermentino is exactly what we love in a white wine: crisp, refreshing, flavorful, and beautifully aromatic without being in-your-face. The fact that it’s grown in Italy along the Mediterranean coast and on the island of Sardinia suggests that it is great with seafood — which it is. But it’s also our favorite wine for Thai food, chicken, and salads.
The Avivo Vermentino opens with notes of stone fruit interlaced with crushed rock, melon rind, and orange blossom. The palate is deliciously crisp and refreshing with flavors of Gravenstein apple, pear, and subtler hints of lime zest and wet stone.
Vineyards: Ledbetter Family Vineyards, Lodi CA. The Vermentino vineyard is in well-drained alluvial soils along the Mokelumne River. The vineyard is farmed to Demeter certified standards of Biodynamics.
Produced & Bottled by Avivo Wines
The 2019 Avivo Vermentino begins with an extremely inviting aroma of melon, a little tropical fruit and pear, touches of dried herbs, lemon and lime, some light floral notes and a hint of stony minerality. There's plenty to take in here so take your time.
Taking a sip reveals a tart, tangy and tasty wine with a lovely viscous mouthfeel. It features great balance, refreshing acidity, similar flavors to the nose and some stony and salty minerality that lasts all the way through the finish. This is really tasty Vermentino.
It ends dry and long. This is a lovely, multi-dimensional wine with plenty of delicious fruit and lots of mineral components as well. Refreshing and fantastic, get it while you can!

"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
"The shipping on the Insider Deals is another great part of the deal. We recently paid $27 to a winery in California to ship 6 bottles (same packaging as the insider deals)....yikes!"
"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
"I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case."
"My wife and I have really enjoyed getting to know new wines (and better than we used to buy!) Thanks for what you do and providing this service!"
