Nube Bianco

My beautiful wife Kathleen has Sicilian roots (maiden name Giglio) and we’d often thought that if we were to make a white wine it should be of Roman (or at least Greco-Roman) origin. We were thinking of a dry Muscat. To quote Jancis Robinson in Vine Grapes and Wines, Muscat, as a variety, rates as “very good quality, not at all modish”. Right up my alley.

Nube Bianco is planted to, among other things, true Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains (France), also known as Moscato Bianco (Italy), the best of the Muscats for dry wine production. The vineyard lies on the east side of Potter Valley, southwest facing. The soil series is Yokayo.
