This cuvée of Grenache and Syrah is our flagship wine, paying respect to our history while celebrating our Monterey terroir. The light, playful flavors of mineral and bright, red fruit of Grenache dance on big, earthy, spice notes of Syrah. This is a wine of substance that harmonizes to the point of singing in the glass.

Le Mistral Whole Cluster Grenache is produced by fermenting intact clusters of grapes with minimal intervention.

Produced from the Organically grown grapes at Folktale Winery, this Nouveau was hand harvested October 10 and sorted into fermenter bins along with dry ice.  We covered the bins and tucked them in the back of our cellar for carbonic fermentation.  As tempting as it was, we didn’t peek at the grapes for three weeks and let the enzymes break the sugar down into alcohol - producing floral crunchy cranberry flavors.  On halloween, we lightly pressed the grapes and let the wine finish it’s fermentation in tank until being bottled 11/26.  25 cases produced.  Enjoy the first taste of our harvest!

Often referred to as “orange wine” the practice of leaving the grape skins to ferment with the pressed juice dates back thousands of years to the Caucasus region where Europe and Asia intersect. This ancient practice of extended skin contact during the fermentation of white wines produces a rich and complex wine with added tannins and phenols, and of course the distinctive amber, or “orange,” hue.  This wine expands the pairing options of white wine. The bright acid and added tannic texture allows this white wine to pair well with bigger, bolder foods, similar to a light red wine. Lightly chill and enjoy this unique white wine experience.

A collaboration wine crafted by Sam Berketa from Alpha Box & Dice, our partner winery in Australia, and Folktale’s own, David Baird. While the adults weren’t looking, the two decided to make a special blend to commemorate the 2018 vintage. De-stemmed Pinot Noir was placed atop whole cluster Syrah grapes to ferment natively in a single bin. The result... if it hadn’t turned out so tasty, they would both be grounded.

This wine is made from the same clone of Pinot Noir (777, aka “Triple Seven”) from two ranches in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Blended together, this wine exhibits the true qualities of a Triple Seven Pinot Noir. Notes of currant, dark plum, blackberry, and warm vanilla open the bouquet, followed by warm leather and the rich minerality typical of the SLH growing region. On the palate, rich, juicy flavors of blackberry and licorice create a round mouthfeel, full bodied and balanced.
