Sauvignon Blanc
I have been making this Sauvignon Blanc since August 2018. The organic Sauvignon Blanc comes from Martorana Family Vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County. The wine is fermented in a few drums and a couple of French oak barrels. Stirring the barrels a few times each year enables the wine to build mouthfeel.

Grenache Blanc and Marsanne
2021 is the first year I have made this wine. The fruit is from Preston Family Vineyards at the far end of Dry Creek Valley. The wine is fermented primarily in seven-year-old barrels, with the balance in two once-used barrels. I blend the two varietals during fermentation which helps combine the aromas of the wine early in its life.

The Chardonnay comes from Zabala Vineyard in Arroyo Seco, Monterey county. I first worked with Zabala fruit almost twenty years ago. The sand and river-rock at Zabala give an acid profile I love. The wine is fermented primarily in seven-year-old barrels. 2021 is the first year I made this wine.
