Rusack VineyardsAn arid, mostly undeveloped island sat in the backyard of one of America’s most famous entrepreneurs for years, but not until 2009 did William Wrigley Jr.’s great-granddaughter plant a vineyard on Santa Catalina Island. The result: the first bottles of chardonnay, zinfandel and pinot noir from Rusack Vineyards. These flavorful white wines are found only at the Avalon Grille or CC Gallagher restaurants in Avalon, Rusack’s tasting room in Solvang, or the online mailing list. An affordable collector’s item.
