The Wine of the Month
Lilly Langtry - Actress
Wine of the Month is Guenoc 1994 California Chardonnay.
The Guenoc (GWEN-NOK) Winery in Guenoc Valley, 90 miles north of San Francisco, was formerly owned by vintner and actress Lillie Langtry. Her image graced the bottles of wine she produced here one century ago just as it does today in the famous George Watts' cameo placed by Winegrower Orville Magoon on each Guenoc label. This Chardonnay goes swimmingly with fish, poultry and delicate pasta sauces.
GUENOC WINERY, PO BOX 1146, MIDDLETOWN, CA 95461
NOTE. Lillie Langtry was born Emilie Charlotte Le Breton.(1852-1929). An English actress, she was noted for her beauty. Born on Island of Jersey, she was called the Jersey Lily. Her first great success: 'She Stoops to Conquer.'
