VINEYARDS: Ricetti, Rosewood + Wirth Ranch

TOTAL PRODUCTION: 2460 cases
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The fruit was destemmed and pressed into stainless steel tank. All three varieties fermented together just over 30 days. Spice comes from the Zinfandel, acidity from the Valdiguié and texture from the Trousseau. This is a 100% finished wine.
About the Winemaker:
We started making our Love Wines because we want to provide a more affordable everyday drinking wine to a larger market while still espousing the key tenets we believe in --- minimal intervention and sustainable farming. The Love wines are larger production blends by design. We still use only native yeasts and bacteria for fermentation with no additives or adjuncts, but we do choose to use trace amounts of SO2 at bottling. Each of the Love blends contain grapes from vineyards with varying degrees of intervention and the vineyards and blends can change with each vintage.
