You can't be too rich, too beautiful, or too birichino.

For the Italians it connotes mischievous, impish, or nymphean- a mark of vitality and embrace of La Dolce Vita.

Of Classical Greek origin, Malvasia threaded her way through the forests of Calabria before slipping ashor in California under cover of darkness. Her fragrance of jasmine, lime blossom and elderflower suggest something quite sweet and sybaritic, though as the first sip passes the lips, she is revealed bone dry, crystalline, and clear.

She has learned, through her worldly travels, to flatter a diverse array of cuisine, from tea smoked duck, to a simply sauteed scallop, to pasta al pesto.

Producer Information

Founded in Santa Cruz in 2008, and drawing on a combined 35 years making and selling wine in California, France, and Italy, owners and winemakers Alex Krause and John Locke are focused on attaining the perfect balance of perfume, poise, and puckishness with a particular fondness for varieties that provide enormous pleasure and re-establish a direct connection to the sensual world.
John worked from 1990-2007 with Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard, with Andre Ostertag of Domaine Ostertag in Alsace in 1993, and with a host of small producers across Italy and Southwestern France. Alex started in 1992 with Randall, worked with John in the cellar, and then escaped to the sales side in the later 90's to eventually serve today as Director of Export Sales for Bonny Doon Vineyard.
