Colombard is a variety originally from the South-West of France where it has been grown for hundreds of years. Yannick made his first Colombard in 1996 in the heart of Gascony. It was once the most widely planted white grape in California. Yannick makes this Colombard using the French traditional winemaking techniques he learned in France.
FYI: Colombard is one of the blending grapes used to make Cognac
