Wines by Bibiana 2024 Winter Release

In farming and winemaking, a new year always feels extra special.  We have a new vintage of wine resting in barrel and we await pruning to commence a new growing season. This winter we are proud to announce the release of three beautiful wines. You will also see that we are including Alma de Cattleya. Rosé is a natural fit for this season, and we want to share the full scope of my wines with each release. You will see one change with the label on our bottling of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. This is the same wine and vineyards we previously bottled as Cuvée Number Eight—now simply labeled as Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.

While I have traveled and made wine in many regions, I still see my role of a winemaker as a minor part of this craft. I believe wine is an expression defined 50% by the variety, 25% by terroir, 15% by vintage and 10% by the winemaker. From my work in Burgundy, Bordeaux, and the Rhône, my favorite varieties evolved to be Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. You likely see the connection to my wines, showcasing these varieties from Sonoma, Napa and Santa Lucia Highlands. Every year and every vintage brings new inspiration to me as a winemaker.

2022 and 2023 were both great vintages, but completely opposite. 2022 was dry and harvest arrived early. The wines are beautiful and concentrated with rich tannin and exuberant flavors while very approachable and fun to enjoy on their early life. On the contrary, 2023 was the latest harvest we’ve seen in over twenty years, with wines full of aromatic intensity, vibrant acidity and freshness. Enjoy this offer of mostly 2022 and a preview of 2023 through rosé.

As we approach Valentine’s Day, a time to celebrate love and gratitude, I invite you to experience these wines that embody not just flavors, but stories and memories. With that in mind, we hope that you will create your own memories around bottles shared, paired, and enjoyed with the people you love. Thank you for being part of this journey and for appreciating the blend of experiences that make our wines uniquely ‘Bibiana.’

Cheers to a season of love, passion, and exquisite wine,

Bibiana
