Natural Wine Making Using Mother Natures Wild Yeast to Ferment our Grapes
As a family-owned winery we are committed to natural wine making, the vineyards are farmed in the best natural techniques. The California vineyards are located in the Sierra Foothills just below Lake Tahoe, Shenandoah Valley in Amador County just east of Sacramento, Livermore Valley South East of San Francisco, and in Lake County Red Hills an hour drive north of Napa County. At elevations ranging from 1,200 to 1,800 feet, comprised of healthy red clay soil containing rich hearty granite and fool’s gold minerals.
We follow natural wine making methods and gentle harvesting practices minimizing the bruising, bringing only the finest fruit to the winery. We harvest at or close to 24 BRIX, the natural sugar level we feel is the optimal ripeness that dramatically influences the wines quality and flavors. Fermenting the grapes with naturally occurring vineyard native yeast, which imparts more complexity and charter then using our passion to handcraft food-friendly, balanced and elegant healthy wines. Which make your taste buds ask for more.
