Shannon Ridge Winery lies in the lesser known California wine region of Lake County. Located north of Napa Valley, the wines produced in the Lake County AVA are influenced by its high elevation, volcanic soils rich with minerals, and by Clear Lake which is California's largest inland body of water. This wine region has over 30 wineries with over 9,000 acres of vineyards.
Pouring the wine, this Vermentino has a light straw-yellow color in the glass with aromas of lemon, chamomile and grass. Tasting the wine, there are notes of citrus, green apple and honey. The acidity is well balanced and not overpowering with a buttery, mineral finish at the end. The folks at Uvaggio believe wine should be fun to drink.

I'm always looking for recipes that look like they take hours to prepare but in fact take as little as 30 minutes. This pork tenderloin stuffed with figs and pistachios is one of them. And what's even better, this recipe comes from a California winery I recently reviewed.
