Winner of the San Francisco Gold Medal for Moscato, the Monticello Cup, and placements on the finest wine lists, Philéo projects a literally irresistible freshness. It is often praised for the expectations it defies -- it isn’t cloying, it isn’t syrupy. Effusively and gorgeously aromatic of roses and apricots, with an intriguingly light lusciousness, it is one of the most elegant and versatile dessert wines produced anywhere in the New World, and one of our most beloved. Chef Patrick O’Connell of The Inn at Little Washington presented Philéo for dessert on his guest appearance at Ferran Adría’s equally esteemed E Bulli restaurant in Barcelona. Its claim upon the human smile is universal.
