NEW VINTAGE ALERT: this Rock Juice best seller is back for the 6th straight year!

A refresher: a couple falls in love working at a winery, decides to go off on their own and make natural, terroir-driven wines out of the best raw material they can find. Ovum is a project from John House and his wife in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, who make ‘Big Salt’ from a mixed bag of aromatic varietals. There is grit and saltiness in the wine, along with floral, honeysuckle and tropical fruit notes balanced by chalky texture and pebbly minerality. Like a Hawaiian garden planted in the middle of Germany’s Pfalz region. Aromatic but not sweet. A supremely satisfying sipper, and excellent food wine – at an everyday price point.  The perfect spring through summer, all-day drinking, white.
