Angelica Cellars

The stylistic goal of Angelica Cellars is to produce outstanding wines with honest varietal characteristics that proudly express their place of origin. Sourcing grapes from the esteemed (and sustainably farmed) White Hawk Vineyard in the Los Alamos Valley in Santa Barbara makes. The cool climate from the Pacific Ocean creates a perfect home for even-ripening grapes. The porous sandy soils push the roots of the vineyard to dig down deep for their drink of water and, consequently, pull up incredible minerality and complexity in flavor. Low yields, a minimal cold-soak, and native fermentation encourage the wine to be what it was meant to be with little intervention. So what might you expect from Angelica Cellars?

Angelica's website seems to not be operative at the time of this listing. We will edit this listing in the future for this Mico-boutique winery as we can.
