Get to know Traveling Vineyard's first 100% Teroldego, sustainably grown in Lodi California. Black Trumpet is a vibrant, refreshing red bursting with juicy blackberry flavors. An excellent bottle to have on hand for summer barbecues, or picnics in the park pairing wonderfully with a charcuterie spread of cured meats, olives, and parmesan cheese or grilled pizza, burgers, and Italian sausage. Our grower described it on the palate flavor-wise as a love-child of Syrah and Zinfandel. Our Director of Wine explains, "the wine looks like Guinness while drinking more like Coors Light." A lovely summer food-friendly red to clink glasses and make memories.
Ultra-traditional red wine production, as Teroldego has existed since ancient Rome with its first "revival" occurring during the Middle Ages. The grape is a Syrah hybrid crossed with France's Lagrein, or with Pinot Noir.
