WINE FINDS: CALIFORNIA CHARDONNAY WITH ST. LOUIS TIES

“River Road Family Vineyards and Winery of Sonoma County is owned by Ron Rubin, who lives both [in St. Louis] and in California. Rubin bought the 37-year-old River Road winery, which is in the Green Valley sub-appellation of Russian River Valley, in 2011.″

“The River Road [Chardonnay] is a lighter wine that’s crisp, clean and quite refreshing. This a fruit-forward, tropical-tasting chardonnay that’s so easy to drink I almost went through half a bottle sipping it while I cooked dinner. The River Road, which has an alcohol level of 12.4 percent, is a good introductory chardonnay for those transitioning to drier wines. A real crowd-pleaser, this wine makes a lovely aperitif wine or a match for lighter foods, such as seafood or sole.”

River Road Chardonnay available at Straub’s Markets. Learn more about River Road’s local owner in this article by Gail Appleson of STL Today!
