Wine Review of 2009 Big House White

Happy Hour: 2009 Big House White

If you've ever walked down a store's wine aisle, chances are, you've caught sight of a few of the fun-loving, colorful labels from Big House Wines. That's what happened to me, at least — and I've been drinking the winery's Big House Red ever since.

This past week, I had the chance to chat with Georgetta Dane, the head winemaker behind the eclectic, prison-themed wine label. Over lunch, she poured me the — pardon the pun — entire lineup of offerings. She started with one of the company's bestselling wines, the Big House White ($8).

Big House White is a blend of about 10 varietals, including Viognier, Malvasia, Muscat, Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Grigio, and Gewürtztraminer. Many of those grapes are highly aromatic, which makes drinking this patio wine a bit like inhaling a nuanced bouquet of potpourri: It's very floral and perfumed, with a light stone fruit finish.

I thought this wine was so perfect for Summer that I picked it up a few days later when shopping at Whole Foods — and was reminded of the ridiculously reasonable price tag! Have you ever tried Big House White, or any of the label's wines?
