Conundrum

This unique, non-traditional white wine blend was created to offer full-flavored fruit and enough complexity to match the creative dishes being offered by today’s generation of chefs. Conundrum can be served with every course from appetizer to dessert, and pairs beautifully with spicy foods and full-flavored Asian cuisine.
The "conundrum", or puzzle, of this wine is in guessing which grapes make up the blend; a combination that includes Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Semillon and Viognier. Conundrum is a true California wine, with grapes sourced from Napa, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Tulare counties. Winemaker Jon Bolta began to craft the style for Conundrum in 1988.

J.C. Cellars

What a nice tasting room! I thought their wines were nice and balanced. The $5 tasting fee was certainly worth it. I am a big proponent of urban wineries and am thrilled that JC Cellars has set up shop in Oakland. If you visit in be sure to try Dasche's wines also!

THE LOVE STORY BEHIND CLOS SOLÈNE

At first, and we are talking when he was 5 years old, Guillaume was into winegrowing, following his father everywhere on their property in the Languedoc-Roussillon. But as he grew up he would be interested in what was happening to the grapes he had been helping to grow and got into winemaking as well. After graduating from Oenology and Viticulture in Carcassonne, his parents moved, selling the family property to buy a new one, in Bourg, a village near Bordeaux. Disappointed, Guillaume stayed in the Languedoc and visited his parents on weekends but not convinced to move… until he met her.

But they had different lives to live. She had to go to Spain and he had to go to California. Alas, their love survived the distance and they faced the obstacles together so that when he asked her to move with him to Paso Robles, refusing to take on the family property but instead developing his own brand, she knew his passion for wine would take them somewhere - she would just have to follow him and trust him. This is how, in 2007, they started Clos Solène. It isn’t all smooth and easy, but Guillaume works still with the same passion, which he claims is alive because the love of his life has faith and trust in him.
