You don’t need a fact-checker to determine the veracity of this statement: Santa Gary loves red wine to the exclusion of all other flavors. . .unless, of course, white is all there is left to open. If that is the case, then I’ll start with the 2014 Envolve Chardonnay (Russian River). This wine retails for $29.95, and we presented it to Wine Club members last month for $24.95 per bottle. Now, Santa Gary was able to source just 10 more cases (out of 241 made) that we’ve got piled up under the mistletoe for a seasons-greeting no-brainer of $19.95 when you purchase six or more. That’s a whopping discount of 33% (or like holding up Santa Gary for two bottles free when you purchase six).
The Benziger Family in Glen Ellen is one of Sonoma’s storied wine dynasties. The Envolve brand is a venture founded in 2008 and owned and managed by the next generation of Benziger siblings: Mike, Kim and Chris. Their portfolio consists of six wines, including a Sonoma Valley cabernet sauvignon.
Producing chardonnay from the Russian River is their sweet spot–it’s in their blood–and this one is a wonderful example of the blending of winemaking DNA with superior fruit. Last chance to score this splendid chard for the holidays.
