This Mendocino old vine field blend is made of Old vine Carignane, Grenache and French Colombard coming from the historic Casa Verde Vineyard, planted in 1944, combine with Grenache from the Niemi Vineyard. These iconic Mendocino vineyards are completely dry farmed and Organic. 

The grapes were destemmed with 80% whole berries. Fermentation took place in open top fermenters. The free-run, drained juice underwent native malolactic fermentation, which took 12 months to complete. The wine was aged for 19 months in older Francois Freres barrels. The wine was bottled on July 31, 2020

These southern French varieties come together in a bright, juicy, and eminently quaffable wine. We suggest a hearty Risotto with winter greens and pancetta to pair with this delicate beauty. Obviously, fresh shaved Parmesean is encouraged.
