Wines of the Month

The August wines of the month are from Cambria Vineyard & Winery located in the Santa Maria Valley of California. Beginning with the August wine features, Anthony DiPilla, our Beverage Manager, along with my assistance, have selected wines that have some significance to the Club, its cuisine, as well as being great aperitifs to kick off your meal. I had the fortune while working in San Francisco, to deal directly with the wineries when purchasing wine. In addition, when we completely remodeled and repositioned our main restaurant at the hotel, it was a benefit to work directly with these wineries when I constructed a new wine list from scratch. It is during that process that I worked with the Regal Wine Group, which owns Cambria among many other high profile California wineries including Lokoya, Cardinale, Hartford Court and Matanzas Creek and many others. Having tasted a great portion of the wines in their portfolio, many times with the winemaker, it is exciting to feature some of Cambria’s wines here at Wilmington Country Club for August.

Cambria Vineyard, “Benchbreak” Chardonnay, 2015
Glass $11.50 / Bottle $42.00

The Benchbreak Chardonnay opens with lively fruit and oak spice aromas. Citrus, pineapple, white peach and apple flavors cary through the mid-palate and into the fresh, clean finish.

Cambria Vineyard, “Benchbreak” Pinot Noir, 2014
Glass $11.50 / Bottle $42.00

The Pinot Noir is deep, dark purple in color with abundant red fruit and dark berry aromas and flavors. The ever-present underlying earthy character compliments its solid tannin structure and long fruity finish.

Cambria Vineyard, “Tepusquet” Viognier, 2015
Glass $11.50 / Bottle $42.00

Bright citrus flavors and aromas (lemon-lime, grapefruit, orange) are the dominant characters in the wine. A balanced acidity enhances the fruit flavors and provides a fresh, crisp finish.
