I can be made in many styles.
I am NOT finicky.
I have a club named after me…the ABC Club.
There are also numerous spas using me as their namesake, and even baby girls are being named after me.

We invite you to listen to Virginia Lambrix at 17:26 minutes into the radio show.

We’ll be speaking with Virginia Lambrix who will be calling in from Sonoma, California and Virginia is the winemaker at Truett-Hurst Winery. We’re going to be chatting with Virginia about the winery’s line of wines called “California Square” where we learn among other things that “IT IS now HIP TO BE SQUARE". These wines are housed in the world’s first square wine bottle, beautifully designed, but also very importantly environmentally friendly.

 

Here is a quote from the designer of these bottles.

“If the wine industry turned over to square instead of round bottles we'd save almost a million trees in outer cardboard boxes alone. That’s not to mention savings in shipping and storage! Stranger & Stranger 


That’s amazing!

 

Medium gold; aromas of vanilla, pineapple and yellow apple; dry, medium bodied with moderate acidity; flavours of tropical fruit and rich vanilla
