MONTEREY TO Z

Monterey is unique among California’s major grape growing regions in its ability to grow any variety to its fullest expression. The key to this of course is the diversity of terrains and climates that the area is blessed with. Songbird Duet is indicative of these very special viticultural conditions, a wine that is born from very special circumstances.

We’re proud of Songbird Duet’s ability to incorporate all the best elements of each wine to produce a whole that is better than the sum of its parts. Songbird Duet is both powerful and elegant, structured and finessed, fruity and savory. A region that is like no other, producing a singular wine – say hello to Songbird Duet.
