Troon Montepulciano and Sangiovese 2016 – James Melendez

Troon is a special producer in Southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley specialsing in Italian, Rhône varieties, Zinfandel and Malbec.  Applegate Valley’s granitic soils and long summer hours of sunshine and heat index make for an ideal climate of the unique and special wines that Troon is producing.

How many wineries in the US are producing Italian varieties?  The answer is easy very few when compared with international varieties.  Also in the question so few are producing a Montepulciano wine.  These wines are expressing an homage to Italy but fundamentally Oregonian.

Troon is working on their LIVE and Salmon Safe certification for implementation of being a biodynamic winery by 2020.   Each of these wines has a small percentage of co-fermented Syrah.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
