Vasco Urbano Wine Company was created to showcase the exceptional Rhone style wines that are being grown and produced here in the Livermore Valley. We believe that the Livermore Valley’s unique terroir is perfectly suited for the Rhone varieties Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah. In addition, we source fruit from other prime growing regions throughout the Central Coast in the spirit of the traveling artist Vasco Urbano Louriero. Together these wines represent our efforts to produce World Class Rhone style wines here in the Livermore Valley.
Vibrant acidity is met with mouth filling fruit in a way that only Grenache Blanc is capable. As you swirl you can imagine ripe green apple, pineapple and assorted stone fruit lying in a bed of freshly plucked rose petals. Pineapples are met with tangerines, candied orange peels, papaya and mango with mouthwatering minerality in the midst of densely packed fruit.
