What Are We Drinking Now? Groundwork Picpoul Carbonique Paso Robles

Marshall has a dry, gorgeous, tangerine-y, peachy orange wine for you. Groundwork Picpoul Carbonique Paso Robles - California As summer stretches on and the heat beats down, who doesn't want to reach for a fun, refreshing drink? My go-to for these blistering days is Groundwork's Picpoul Carbonique, a lovely skin-contact wine made from Picpoul, Malvasia, and Malbec. This delicious blend is treated to carbonic maceration, which produces a soft body and makes Groundwork almost too easy to drink.
