Belle Glos Pinot Noir

Belle Glos Pinot Noir: A Success Story

In the realm of wine brands, certain labels emerge as iconic, pleasing the palates of somm's and novices alike. Among these, Belle Glos Pinot Noir stands out as a true testament to craftsmanship, quality, and a distinct sense of place or as we like to say--somewhereness.

The company's distinct blends, such as the iconic "The Prisoner" red blend, artfully and mind-bogglingly combine different grape varieties--sourcing grapes from 100 different growers across California.

Who has not heard the refrain "Wine is in the Bible" especially during defense of the occasional glass of wine when it becomes more frequent in one's daily diet.  So I wanted to know exactly how many times wine is mentioned in the bible after the utterance was voiced--not by me--recently.
