Francis Ford Coppola's American Pioneer Wine Growers Debuts "The White Doe"

Posted on August 19, 2014

American Pioneer Wine Growers is proud to introduce the company’s first release called The White Doe. A light and refreshing blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier, this wine is dedicated to the delicate, ethereal creature depicted in ancient folklore. The White Doe, a love that could never be, pays homage to the long–standing heritage of American winegrowing and is taken from a page in history and is part of an American myth:

Her name is whispered
through the mists in
the forest.
A lover’s curse obscures her fate.
Vainly, men seek her footprints.
But The White Doe eludes

The “home of The White Doe” is the yet–to–be–named winery owned by American Pioneer Wine Growers, American wines since 1835. The White Doe is the leading character in a series of events that are intertwined in the mystical tale of love and wine. The White Doe wine pays tribute to the mythical folklore, being equally elusive and mysterious. The White Doe is one of several new wines that will be released over time, which will eventually all come together to explain the legend behind The White Doe. Learn more by visiting the home of the White Doe located at 22281 Chianti Road, Geyserville, CA 95441.

American Pioneer Wine Growers, American wines since 1835, pays tribute to the American winegrowing heritage, as well as the history of Native American Indians and the earliest English colonists, with a strong focus on the 16th century era through the 19th century. In fact, when the Norse Vikings first saw the winegrowing regions of North America, they coined the area Vinland, for the reason that grapevines grew here by themselves, producing the best wine. As for the oldest cultivated grapevine in the world, it’s the 400–year–old scuppernong “Mother Vine” growing on Roanoke Island, North Carolina. “The White Doe is more than a wine; it’s an authentic American myth and one of a number of new wines that will eventually reveal the name, style and essence of our new winery in Geyserville. It’s a unique blend of 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier, intended to bring forth gurgling brooks and the natural glade settings of the America that once was, and in a way will always be: blue skies, verdant fields and bounteous natural food and drink. Purity, wholesomeness – these are the ideas that we will continue to share with you as we reveal the story we have to tell.” – American Pioneer Wine Growers
