Terroir Notes: All the vineyards are farmed organically throughout Northern California (Mendocino Zin & Colombard, Clarksburg Pinot Gris, Sierra Foothills Nero d'Avola & Cinsault, and Lodi Muscat)

Winemaking Notes: The Zinfandel and Colombard were direct pressed. The Pinot Gris and Muscat macerated with their skins for 5 days. The Nero d'Avola saw foot stomping before pressing. The Cinsault underwent carbonic maceration.

Tasting Notes: The texture of the Pinot gris marries nicely with the lightness of the Zinfandel to give a super refreshing rosé/orange wine palate. The Nero d'Avola and Colombard bring serious acidity, the Cinsault some extra fruit and color and the Muscat boosts the nose with beautiful aromatic notes.

ʻThereʼs a nice tension between the Romato style Pinot Gris and light, fresh stone-fruit of the Zinfandel.ʼ - Diego
