Gnarly Head Chardonnay comes to us from Lodi, Ca., in the northern part of California's Central Valley. You can find this bottle of white at , located in West Park Plaza.
The wine is named after the sea of gnarled, older vines on which the grapes are grown. They produce fewer grape clusters with smaller berries, but the color is bright and and the flavor packs a punch. Fresh and vibrant, this is not an oaky chardonnay, but one that is fruit forward. You'll notice flavor notes of melon, pineapple and pear.
Each Friday night from 7-9 p.m., The Village Market holds complimetary wine tastings.
"We introduced this wine to customer's at last Friday's tasting," says owner Tracy Herring, "and many of us really liked it. At $9.99, it's great price point - you don't have to spend a lot of money to get a bottle of wine with great flavor."
The store recently merged with West Park Bagel and Deli, located just next door. Now customers can conveniently grab a bottle of wine and a casual dinner from one central place in West Park Plaza. Chill out at one of the small indoor tables, or enjoy a casual dinner al fresco on the patio.
