We’ve written before about Anthill Farms and its excellent Pinot Noirs, one of which many of you picked out from our list of Thanksgiving picks, and we’re happy to now include one of its white wines in our December wine club. Anthill consistently produces great wine from vineyards in the North Coast area of California. Given the experience and talent level of partners Anthony Filiberti, Webster Marquez, and David Low, there are not many wines from California that boast such high quality at such unbeatable prices as those of Anthill Farms. The three met more than 15 years ago, working at the Williams Selyem winery in Sonoma, and founded Anthill in 2004. While Anthill’s production levels have grown over this period of time, it remains a small producer, with a focus on high quality fruit and intensive, holistic farming practices.
The “Helluva Vineyard” white is a blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, and Gewürztraminer, from a parcel in Mendocino. The grapes are cofermented and vinified like a white wine despite including a red variety. The Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer bring ripe stone fruit and floral aromatics as well as weight and texture, while the Pinot Noir keeps things bright. Like other Anthill wines, the finish here strikes a lovely balance between fruit and acidity, and it’s versatile and round enough to drink on its own or to pair with vegetable dishes, white meats, or seafood.
