Mosaic Wine Group was thrilled to taste Testarossa Castello Chardonnay and its Palazzio Pinot Noir and single-vineyard Sleepy Hollow Pinot Noir with Paul Pinnel owner of Dallas’s hottest wine bar Dali Wine Bar and Cellar. Paul has been drinking Testarossa for years and it was fascinating to get his notes on vintage and growing-site variation for these superb wines.

Paul was inspired to name his restaurant after the artist Salvador Dali when he was given a copy of Dali’s book on wine, The Wines of Gala (1978). “I sleep with that book by my bedside,” said Paul. “Dali really knew wine and the book is fascinating.”

Testarossa is a benchmark, family-owned and run winery and produces only 16,000 cases of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
