Vintage: 2021
Region: North and Central Coasts, California
Viticulture: Sustainable
Grape varieties: Tocai Friulano, Riesling, Verdelo, Albarino, Sauvignon Blanc

Folk Machine White Light is another fun, easy-drinking, summery, light white wine. Fresh with acid and some mineral and a sort of salty, briny character that the Tocai Friulano has toned down with the fruit and aromatics of Riesling and Verdelho. A blend of Tocai Friulano from Mendocino, Riesling from Arroyo Seco, Verdelho from Suisun Valley, Albariño from Borden Ranch, and Sauvignon Blanc from Potter Valley. Each of the lots was picked early in the season with brix numbers ranging from 19˚ to 21˚. The final wine is 11.6% alcohol.

I don’t want to be controversial here but we like this with fettucini alfredo. The creamy kind. Yes, lets add cream please! Toss in some chicken and really make it American. I am not claiming this is authentic, but it sure is delicious. This light white wine works really well with the creaminess of this dish. We like this recipe for “Best Fettuccine Alfredo” from Food52.

Song: White Light/White Heat by The Velvet Underground

White Light was inspired by a trip to the vortexes of Sedona, Arizona, but maybe a little Velvet Underground too.

About Folk Machine

Having made a name for himself crafting critically acclaimed Cabernets and Zinfandels for his label Hobo Wine Company, Kenny Likitprakong created Folk Machine Wines as a home for his Pinot Noirs and a smattering of wines from some of California’s more esoteric grapes. A former surf bum, Kenny spent his twenties drinking cheap Bordeaux and sleeping on beaches. He doesn’t own vineyards, instead, he sources grapes from 40 different vineyards along the Northern California coast, from Santa Cruz to Mendocino.

Sourcing fruit this way can have some negative effects on quality but Kenny does things a little differently. He plants and tends thousands of vines on 18 leased acres in Santa Cruz and Sonoma, and keeps a sharp eye on quality control everywhere else. “I see 15 to 20 vineyards a week during harvest. It’s important that the agricultural views of the people tending the vines line up with mine,” says Kenny. “If you have great grapes, you can still screw it up. But if you don’t have great grapes, you’re never going to turn them into gold.”

Like all of Kenny’s wines, the Folk Machines are nimble and approachable; a balancing act between sheer pleasure and complexity.
