The name 'Angelica' describes a historic style of wine produced with little or no fermentation; it is made by the addition of brandy to grape juice. This type of wine was popular in the 1800's and plays an important role in the history of the California wine industry. Produced from Mission grapes, brought from Spain hundreds of years ago by Catholic priests, this style of wine was served first as alter wine in the early missions along the California coast and then in the gold camps and boarding houses of the Sierra Nevada. The grapes for our Angelica come from a century-old vineyard in Amador County which is still producing small amounts of this delicious fruit. Hand bottled and only available from the Indian Rock tasting room to wine club members exclusively.
