THE BLISS STORY
In the late 1930s Irv Bliss, the Grandfather of the current owners, first visited Mendocino County and spotted a picturesque ranch among the rolling hills and unspoiled land. Years later, when Irv learned of a Mendocino property for sale, he gathered all his savings and placed a bid—sight unseen. As fate would have it, the plot Irv purchased was the original 450-acre estate that had captivated his
imagination years before.
Sixty years later, the grandkids still carry Irv’s love for the land and celebrate Irv’s legacy by showcasing the
rich fruit they grow on the property and putting "bliss" into every bottle.
This perennial “pizza/pasta wine,” previously called 'School House Red,' has become ‘Blissful Red’: starring
Primitivo, Zinfandel, and Sangiovese with Barbera, Merlot, Cab, and Syrah for additional structure. It has a nose of dried cherries, plums, and clove, followed by a rich mouth feel bursting with bright raspberries and cinnamon notes. This wine finishes with integrated tannins and good acidity to make it the perfect food match.
Versatile enough to pair with everything from savory pizzas to delicious pastas.Perfect with a Hawaiian “pie”, spaghetti with meatballs, or just about anything.
