2017 Matchbook Extra Virgin Olive Oil is now available!

by: Mikaela Leach

Fresh from the Old Matchbook Olive Grove, our new vintage of Matchbook Estate Grown Extra Virgin Olive Oil is now available. It is all dressed up in an elegant new package.

This year’s oil was 100% hand picked and is a blend 70% Frantoio and 30% Leccino.  The oil is very balanced with medium robustness and a high fruit component, medium bitterness and pungency.  The 2017 oil offers pleasing aromas of green and ripe olive, herbs, green almond with a buttery mouth feel, low astringency and long, lingering finish.

92 POINTS & Editors’ Choice for 2016 Verdejo!

by: Mikaela Leach

“Intriguing and complex” and 92 POINTS and Editors’ Choice from Wine Enthusiast for the 2016 Tinto Rey Verdejo!

Verdejo is hard to come by in the US, but this Spanish varietal thrives in the Matchbook Estate Vineyards in the Dunnigan Hills AVA of California.  We hand-picked the Verdejo, whole-cluster pressed the grapes and moved the juice into neutral barrels for fermentation. Following fermentation the wine was aged eight months in neutral French oak barrels. We stirred the lees during the aging process to enhance the wine’s richness.

We agree this wine is delicious with “bright elements orange zest and pineapple with richer flavors of toasted almond, salted peanuts and dried figs.” Click here to buy a bottle today.
