Raise a glass to the warm weather with one of these delicious budget-friendly bottles from Gooseneck Wines.
Gooseneck Vineyards’ Pinot Grigio has the inviting aromas of honeysuckle, peach and lychee nut. The mouthfeel is of integrated and rich fruit. Flavors of lime, nectarine, melon are complemented by a clean, refreshing flavors of lemon and peach with a round mouth-feel and a crisp, lingering finish. All with a zesty and clean acidity that pairs well with seafood, shellfish, poultry, salads, fruits, light pastas, and mild cheeses – and also is a great complement to spicy cuisine and lively conversation.

Gooseneck Vineyards’ Chardonnay contains a gorgeous bouquet of orchard fruits followed by a creamy mouth-feel of butter and green apples, wrapped in an elegant composition with a hint of oak, that the slides into a finish of satisfaction. Our grapes are cold-soaked on their skins prior to fermentation. This process allows for the final wine to show richness and creaminess balanced by lovely acidity, despite the fact that it sees just a hint of oak.
Pairs perfectly with lighter pasta and protein dishes, soft and creamy cheeses, and drinks on the patio with friends.

Gooseneck Vineyards’ Dry Rosé displays an elegant sandy pink color. The nose is of fresh cut roses, as the mouth-feel rushes in with flavors of delicate blackberries and boysenberries. This perfectly balanced Rosé is an ideal marriage with appetizers, delicate pasta courses, baked or roasted fish, steamers and raw shellfish: littlenecks, oysters, and shrimp. More so recommended for those moments shared on a picnic blanket, patio, or a beach chair.

Gooseneck Vineyards’ Prosecco gracefully opens with a beautiful straw color coupled with a nose of fresh citrus and whispers of tender apricot. Bubbles tickle gracefully, as prominent notes of pink grapefruit are followed by flutters of green apple. The finish is as relaxing as its label suggests: crisp, refreshing and stylish. This perfectly balanced Prosecco tastes best as an aperitif among friends.
