DEEP SEA Hand Crafted Wines are made from coastal vineyards to reflect the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean, and are perfect for the modern wine drinker. These wines reflect their origins and the impact of California's coastal climate, particularly in Santa Barbara where wine grapes are ideally influenced throughout the growing season by the unique climes created by the Pacific Ocean. The ocean themes of the labels reference the focus of Deep Sea wines, showcasing their origin of close proximity to the ocean, and impact of natural cooling on Santa Barbara vineyards.

This Santa Barbara County Chardonnay is sourced from an acclaimed Los Alamos Vineyard site, Valley View Vineyard. Stainless steel fermented, and then transferred to a combination of new and neutral oak barrels for 6 months.
The Halcyon Riesling is handcrafted in an off-dry style, with sweet fruit notes of peach, yellow apple, and honeyed pear. Perfect with spicy cuisine, or paired with creamy cheeses, almonds and honey. Fermentation was stopped while some residual sugar remained, to give this wine flavors that are gentle and round on the palate, with a long lingering finish. Serve chilled before dinner as an apertif, or pair with Thai curry, shrimp with a spicy mango salsa, or watermelon and feta salad.
Sourced from an acclaimed vineyard site in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, our Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of FPS Clone 1 (Wente Clone) and the Sauvignon Musqué, which offers more tropical fruit notes and fantastic aromatics. We harvest at 23 brix, and have kept to the same style for the last six vintages. Fermentation begins immediately after the grapes are pressed, starting with lower temperatures to control the process. Several types of yeast are used to control fermentation at a rate which maximizes desired flavors and aromatics. This crisp, refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks.
Smells like Pineapple, Pear, and Fresh Cut Hay. Tastes like Grapefruit, Lime, and White Nectarine. Pair with Shellfish, drink with Friends.
75% Gewürztraminer and 25% Sauvignon Blanc make for an incredibly light, refreshing white blend as satisfying as a splash in the ocean on a hot July day!

Whether you're enjoying it at the beach, or dreaming of the Pacific Ocean while you drink it, this wine is sure to conjure up all the joy of Summer!
