Orfila Vineyards and Winery’s “Lotus” Wine

This past weekend we enjoyed a wine from Orfila Vineyards and Winery located in Southern California, a few miles from San Diego.

We opened the Orfila “Lotus” wine; it was a blend of Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne. This wine offered an aroma and taste of peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruit on the aroma and taste. The finish was very fruity. We tried to pair the wine with a very spicy Chinese dish. However the pairing was not a wise one. However on the second night we finished the wine with a dinner of oven baked chicken, sweet potatoes and salad and the pairing was delicious. My suggestion is not to try pairing the wine with a heavily spiced entrée.

Orfila Vineyards and Winery is located in San Diego County. We had the opportunity to visit Orfila and view the picturesque vineyards and a tasting in the tasting room. We also visited their Julian tasting room located at a high elevation in Julian, California.

Orfila offers several events during the year, Follow the Orfila website and watch for the Concerts in the Vineyards, the Annual Grape Stomp and the Futures Dinner. If you are looking for a place to host a private event, Orfila Vineyards and Winery is the perfect place to have the event.

Cheers, Kathy
