What’s in a name? We source our red grapes from Abba Vineyard. The Abba family has been growing grapes for going on 4 generations. Each year, we take the 70’s musical group, ABBA, and name the wine after an ABBA song. The 2017 Mamma Mia is named for our daughter, Melissa, because 2017 is the year her son, Joshua, was born.
The pairing: This wine could be paired with grilled meats like steak or braised meats like short ribs or duck, lamb or a good old meat pizza
