Little John Lane & The End of Nowhere are a homecoming story. After years spent working as a firefighter and lighting designer, winemaker Chris Walsh fell in love with wine in New York while bartending his way through graduate school. In 2014, he returned to his native Amador County to plant his own vines. While his young vines mature, Walsh founded The End of Nowhere line to showcase wines made from the fruit of some of the area’s best vineyards, like this 100% organically farmed orange Verdejo from Heringer Vineyard in Clarksburg. Clean and refreshing, notes of fresh grass, sage, ocean breeze, and lemon blossom open the wine and swell across the palate, finishing with a delicate, yet persistent finish. Try it with grilled fish or white meats, summery caprese salads, or sunset at the beach.
