Skywalker Ranch Merlot?

An Alcoholic Collaboration Between George Lucas and Francis Coppola. This TOTALLY explains Jar Jar.

Viandante del Cielo

Niebaum-Coppola is proud to present the first public release of George Lucas' "Viandante del Cielo" Skywalker Ranch Chardonnay. Viandante del Cielo is Italian for walker of the skies. The grapes were sourced from a tiny vineyard on George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, CA.
They were harvested and delivered to our Niebaum-Coppola winemakers Scott McLeod and Corey Beck, they were then fermented in small French oak barrels, aged and bottled.
The Skywalker Ranch wines had previously only been available to George Lucas' family and friends.

With only 250 cases produced supplies are extremely limited and will not last long.

Tasting Notes:
The 2002 Lucas Chardonnay has aromas of crisp McIntosh apples and fresh cinnamon stick followed by lively flavors of pear, lemon, and toasty meringue on the palate. For an ideal food and wine pairing try it with shrimp scampi or scallops in a brown butter sauce.
