Cabernet Sauvignon



CABERNET SAUVIGNON FROM CALIFORNIEN


Bliss Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich wine with dark fruit tones of raspberries, plums, tobacco and a firm tannin structure. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely used and loved grapes in California. The climate here is warm and produces wines that are more fleshy, fruity and generous than e.g. Bordeaux wines made on Cabernet Sauvignon.

ABOUT THE WINERY


BLISS FAMILY VINEYARDS


Brutocao started with Irv Bliss, a farmer in Sonoma in the early 1930s, who dreamed of having a vineyard up north in Mendocino, which he considered most suitable for viticulture. In 1943, the opportunity came when a 180-acre vineyard he had previously looked longingly at, came for sale. After 35 years of hard work, his son-in-law Leonardo Brutocao took over in the late 70s. In 1991, a brand new winery was built, and his three sons joined the operation and specialized themselves in field work, vinification and marketing.


Bliss begyndte med Irv Bliss, der var farmer i Sonoma først i 1930-erne og drømte om at få en vingård nordpå i Mendocino, som han mente mest velegnet til vindyrkning. I 1943 kom muligheden, da en 180 hektar vingård, han tidligere havde set længselsfuldt på, kom til salg. Efter 35 års hårdt arbejde overtog hans svigersøn Leonardo Brutocao i slutningen af 70-erne. I 1991 blev et helt nyt vineri bygget, og hans tre sønner indgik i driften og specialiserede sig i hhv. markarbejde, vinifikation og afsætning.
