  MOSBY Acqua di Lampone
Raspberry brandy from whole fruit nourished to perfection on the verdant slopes of the Columbia Gorge east of Portland, Oregon.
  MOSBY Chardonnay
Light, bright, pure and honest. Wine Enthusiast (July 1999) describes it as "drinks clean and pure . . ." Named by Bon Appétite (June 1998) as one of the top 7 Chardonnay values last year!
  MOSBY Cortese
The 2004 Mosby Cortese is Bill Mosby's fourth release of this delightful Cal-Italia wine, made from estate-grown fruit. Light and clean, the soft floral nose is followed by flavors of citrus and apricot with a crisp, mineral finish.
  MOSBY Distillato di Prugne
Plum brandy from whole fruit - prunus subcordata, a rare wild species which grows among the forlorn hills of eastern Oregon and northern California.
  MOSBY Dolcetto
Bill Mosby’s fourth release of Dolcetto is here. The 2001 Mosby Dolcetto is a limited production wine that is rapidly gaining attention! The 2001 Mosby Dolcetto has a nose with spicy hints of mace, leather and forest floor. The backbone of tannin is interlaced with clean raspberry fruit, followed by a firm, griping finish. Bill crafted this wine in the style of the famous Dolcetto d'Albas, and we enjoy it paired with hearty entrees - try it with roasted duck, or beef short ribs braised in red wine. While this Dolcetto is delicious now, it has the stamina for up to five years of cellar time.
  MOSBY Grappa di Traminer
Over the centuries, on the small winery farms of Italy and France, the winemakers would add water to the grape pomace and distill it. In France, this crystal-clear, high-proof beverage was known as Marc. In Italy it was called Grappa. The 80-proof Mosby Grappa di Traminer was made with pomace from estate-grown Traminer. It is an excellent conclusion to a meal—especially Italian cuisine—and should be enjoyed in the same way you would enjoy a snifter of cognac or a fine single-malt Scotch whisky.
  MOSBY La Seduzione
The 2002 Mosby La Seduzione is Bill's third release of this rare Cal-Italian varietal. The Lagrein grape is named after the Lagarina Valley of Trentino, although it is now primarily grown at Gries on the outskirts of Bolzano. An extremely rare grape in the United States, we know of only a handful of vineyards in California. Bill was able to procure these grapes from the French Camp Vineyard. This velvety violet colored wine offers aromas of dark plums, cocoa and wild wood mint. The rich mouth feel and flavor of ripe black currants finish with soft tannins.
  MOSBY Lucca
Lucca is a red table wine made from Mosby estate Sangiovese, and is every bit as good as many Chianti Classicos. Perfect for everyday meals, Lucca is one of the best wine values in the Santa Ynez Valley. This dry red table wine has classic flavors of dark cherry and light oak with a bright, balanced acidity and smooth finish.
  MOSBY Pinot Grigio
This wine exudes "celebration." Light and refreshing, the 2004 Mosby Pinot Grigio delights with the aromas of ripe pear, tropical fruit, and vanilla bean. The crisp, citrusy taste is followed by a surprisingly dry, clean finish with an element of wet stone. Historically, Pinot Grigio originates from the Fruili-Venezia Guilia of Italy. Said to be a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape, the Pinot Grigio seems unsure whether it is a red or white wine grape. Hence, grigio, meaning gray.
  Mosby Primativo
The 2003 Mosby Primativo is dark and intense, with concentrated flavors of dark fruit covered in brambles and briar. This Primativo has its pedal to the metal! The fruit is from the Lojocono Vineyard of San Luis Obispo County, real Primitivo country. A great choice for smoked meats, bar-b-que or Tex-Mex dishes, this wine with its palate-cleansing qualities would also be at home with pasta in garlic and black olive paste or a more subtle home-style lasagna.
  MOSBY Roc Michel
The 2001 Mosby Roc Michel is a Rhône varietal blend of Syrah and Mourvedre. The grapes for this wine came from son Michael Mosby's Fremir Vineyards, located in Monterey County. The name, Roc Michel, means "Michael's rock" referring to the particular soil where the vineyard is planted and to the steadfast temperament of Michael himself. The terroir of Parkfield, earthquake capital of the world, is especially well suited for the grapes that make up this flavorful blend.
  MOSBY Rosato di Sangiovese
The 2004 Mosby Rosato di Sangiovese is Bill's gorgeous rose made from estate-grown Sangiovese. Think of summer in a, strawberries, white peaches and melon, with a clean, crisp, dry finish. This wine is a full-bodied rose, perfect for spicy foods like Chipotle chicken, bar-b-qued ribs or garlicy shellfish. Try it with pancetta-wrapped grilled shrimp or grilled vegetables with a spicy dip for an appetizer course.
  MOSBY Sangiovese
The 2003 Mosby Sangiovese is a classic example of Sangiovese, deeply colored and highly extracted. The brooding aromas of leather, smoke and bacon are softened by ripe loganberry and blueberry fruit in the mouth. The wine finishes with subtle oak, soft tannins and integrated acidity. The grapes were picked from the Vigna della Casa Vecchia (Vineyard of the Old House), which surrounds the historic adobe near the winery. The wine was aged in older French oak barrels, which allows the varietal character of the Sangiovese grape to fully express itself. Enjoy this wine with the same foods you would choose to pair with a fine Chianti. Pastas in tomato sauces, veal dishes, beef or game birds.
  MOSBY Sofia
A luscious raspberry dessert wine, bursting with the aroma and flavor of ripe red raspberries
  MOSBY Stelline di Cortese
The 2004 Mosby Stelline di Cortese or Little Stars of Cortese is a crisp, vibrant sparkling wine. Estate-grown Cortese grapes were picked early in the 2004 harvest season to produce this festive libation. The citrusy character of the Cortese grapes shines through in the clean flavor, while the delicate mousse and gentle effervescence leave the palate refreshed. You don't need an occasion to open a bottle of Stelline di Coretese...opening a bottle is the occasion!
  MOSBY Teroldego
The 2004 Mosby Teroldego is a noble wine that introduces itself through a nose of almonds and flowers. The lush flavors of ripe raspberry and brown spice are followed by a smooth, lingering finish. Teroldego pairs especially well with beef, lamb, or game. Try a bottle with a grilled steak or butterflied leg of lamb. Served with family and friends, this wine turns a meal into a celebration.
  MOSBY Traminer
The 2004 Mosby Traminer has a rich, typically spicy nose that implies sweetness. You almost believe it when you taste flavors of pear, lychee, lemon zest and tropical fruit. Surprise! The finish is long, clean, bracing and DRY. Traminer wines originated in the Alto Adige region of northern Italy. The warm summer days and chilly nights result in grapes with the distinctive fragrance so characteristic of this varietal. The 2003 Mosby Traminer is made from 100% estate-grown grapes from Mosby's Vigna della Casa Vecchia in Santa Barbara County, which has the same combination of warm days and cool nights that result in this traditional style Traminer.Bronze medal, San Diego Wine Competition
