Golden Cluster Dionystic ‘Alberto’

The coziest friend on the couch

Bursting with jammy fruit – like blackberries crushed on toast – this wine is the coziest friend on the couch. A smooth, dusty, creamy wine coming from the northern edge of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. We have been looking for a great, naturally made Rioja wine (wine from Spain made from the Tempranillo grape) for some time now, but  then this came along – and it’s PERFECT. Like Spanish wine made right here in the Pacific Northwest.

Our Best Advice

Swap this for your fave Spanish red

Delicious With

Pairs particularly well with Spanish dishes especially lamb and pork and recipes with red peppers, paprika, garlic and saffron. Surprisingly good with classic Indian dishes like lamb curry or madras chicken, and most heavily spiced and flavored cuisines.

Their Cred

Golden Cluster started with the 2013 vintage, marking another new era of wines from a historic vineyard in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The hill where the grapes are grown is the precise location of both the origins of Oregon’s wine culture and Oregon’s modern wine renaissance. This hill was known affectionately as “Wine Hill” as it was home to multiple vineyards and wineries from about 1872 until the beginnings of Prohibition in 1915 (Oregon enacted Prohibition 4 years prior to the Federal Government). This vineyard site was brought back to life when it was purchased in 1965 and planted, once again, to wine grapes. Those vines helped to kick off the modern wine industry in the Willamette Valley.
