  • OR


    Bookshelf produced only 65 cases of a wonderful white Pinot Noir called Dichotomy. It was made in the spirit of the Blanc de Noir wines of Champagne without the bubbles! 

    The wine has a floral bouquet and with hints of almonds and white chocolate. This wine is an exceptional summer sipper and is so unusual in California, that it is a rare conversation piece.  An estate wine.

    Bookshelf Wines Dichotomy is actually a Blanc de Noir style wine. Blanc de Noir, or White from Black, wine is made from the Pinot Noir grape.

    The Pinot Noir grape is a grape of the famous wines of Burgundy and Champagne, France. Although it is well suited to some regions of California, it also has a reputation for being a grape variety that is low yield and difficult to grow. That being said, when it is good, it is very good! So good, in fact, that the grape is still cultivated in limited amounts in El Dorado County.

    In France, the best Pinot Noir is made into the famous wines of Burgundy such as Romanee Conte and Domaine Leroy. It is also made into the Blanc de Noir white sparklers of Champagne. Now, in El Dorado Wine Region, it is made into a still wine version called Dichotomy.

    The Pinot Noir grape has red skin and white juice. Want red wine? Ferment on the skins. Want white wine? Crush the grapes and press out the white juice.

    Bookshelf Wines Dichotomy is a fine example of a wonderful white sipping wine made in the Blanc de Noir style with a twist. The twist is that it is made right here in El Dorado County! 

    Hey, When is the right time to drink white wine?
