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!

This carbonic wine was fermented without oxygen by allowing the grapes to ferment spontaneously under a thick veil of dry ice. The result is a true expression of the fruit - crunchy red fruit notes of cranberry, bing cherry, and muddled raspberry, with softer notes of wood and graphite.

We’re honestly thrilled to introduce this new vintage from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Once allowed to open, the bouquet is richly aromatic with gorgeous notes of violets, roses, chocolate cherries, blueberry, strawberry, and vanilla. There’s the classic SLH minerality, akin to slate and pencil lead. There’s a hint of cola, and a bite of white pepper. This wine is decadent like red velvet cake, but well balanced with brisk acidity. Enjoy now, or let it rest in your cellar.

This vintage of Joseph’s Blend is juicy, spicy, and well-structured thanks to a subtle addition of Petite Sirah.

This is a perfect summertime smokehouse wine to compliment your favorite braised ribs, balsamic veggies, and Carolina BBQ.

This is a big, robust wine with layers of cedar, cherry cola, baking spice, and lingering soft tannin.
