& True Myth
One way to describe the Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth Tasting Room is to talk about the wide variety of high-quality choices available. You can find over 30 different wines falling under five wine brands: reds, whites, sparkling and blends. This month, the tasting list features an Albariño, a Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir and two red blends. There are typically 10 other reds and whites available for tasting. Being able to offer a variety of exceptional wines is no accident. Members of the Niven family have grown wine grapes in the Edna Valley for close to 45 years. The majority of the wines featured in the tasting room are made from estate-grown fruit. More than 10 different grape varieties are grown on the Niven’s own Paragon Vineyard.
Where to find Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth wines
While Bailayana wines can be found throughout the United States and Canada, and in stores such as Trader Joe’s, Safeway and Costco, more than half can only be found in the winery’s tasting room.
Some of the new releases to look for include:
• Baileyana 2014 “La Pristina” Chardonnay, crisp with a subtle oaky touch
• Baileyana 2014 “El Jugoso” Syrah, an estate wine described as luscious and juicy. It is a wine club favorite.
• Zocker “Stone Egg” Grüner Veltliner, a wine with flavor and depth. The fermentation process occurs in egg shaped containers made of concrete.
• Trenza 2013 “Obispan” which is a red wine blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Sirah.
Other noteworthy wines include the Baileyana 2014 “Halcon Rojo” Pinot Noir and the Baileyana 2014 “S-BAR” Chardonnay, which both received positive reviews in the California Grapevine and Connoisseurs Guide.
Baileyana heads in a new direction
While most of you know us by the name “Baileyana”, our long-time followers know we have multiple wine labels: Baileyana was our first, but we also produce Tangent, True Myth, Zocker and Trenza wines. We are introducing this updated name for our Tasting Room because it highlights our three most prominent brands and simplifies our identity for all to remember!
