URSUS - 2008
Ursus is the name of our proprietary blend consisting of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petite Verdot. As always all of the grapes used to produce the blend are grown on the Berthoud estate. Ursus is the Latin word for Bear, while Berthoud is pronounced Bear-2. Just like the bear, Ursus is a muscular wine while maintaining an elegant balance. It is an old world style wine that is best enjoyed with a meal.

SYRAH - 2008
At Berthoud Winery we also produce a tiny bit of Syrah - only three barrels for about 74 cases annually. Our Syrah is a truly artisanal wine with red and dark berry flavors but is not over extracted. It is well balanced with exceptionally well integrated oak. This wine begs for food and is a real pleasure.

CHASSELAS DORÉ – 2014 (pronounced Shasslah Doh-ray)
Chasselas is the most common white grape grown in Switzerland but is virtually unknown in the United States. After discovering a small quantity growing on the Pagani Ranch – planted in 1904 - we contracted to purchase the entire block (a whopping 2 tons). Having the opportunity to produce a wine that we enjoyed so much but were unable to find was extremely exciting. The Berthoud Chasselas Doré is made to emulate the best wines of Switzerland, clean, crisp, low in alcohol (only 12%), and just an ever so slight hint of effervescence. It has a completely unique flavor that must be experienced to appreciate. Our Chasselas Doré is fermented in stainless steel and malo-lactic fermentation is inhibited to preserve its crispness and freshness. A natural accompaniment to fondue, or virtually any cheese. Chasselas Doré is also at home with seafood or simply for summer sipping on the porch.
