Wine Pick #1:
Union Sacré Elsass Dry Riesling 2019
Santa Barbara, Central Coast, California
Union Sacré is an homage to Alsace, France, and life's odd ability to build unexpected bridges. These wines are made by two friends from different continents. Union Sacré exists at the meeting of worlds. Made by two long-time friends, Xavier and Philip, who arrived at the Central Coast from opposite ends of the Earth. Xavier is a WSET certified, Oenology degree holder from France. Philip is a self-taught designer from Michigan who kind of misses living in a van. Between the two of them, Xavier and Philip have 25+ years of experience working in Central Coast wineries.
