Mommenpop Ruby Red Grapefruit Aperitif
Mommenpop started in 2017, as winemaker Samantha Sheehan and her husband Michael were on a spritz kick, drinking them almost daily over the course of a particularly hot California summer. Sam developed Mommenpop at home that year - just for her family and friends - as a less-sweet, dye-free alternative to aperitifs that she loves but that were just so sweet. She used locally-grown peak-season Seville oranges and a juicy base of her own Chardonnay. Then she made some more, with more citrus, and more wine, and more people started asking for it, and a new California aperitif was born.
Mommenpop's Grapefruit aperitif is zippy and prickling with notes of fresh grapefruit rind. You drink it feeling like the day is endless. Made with freshly-picked Oro Blanco grapefruits, imparting a zesty, floral, barely-bitter mouthfeel. An approachable, easy-drinking aperitif. 17% abv.
