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. The results speak for themselves – exhibiting notes of mulberry, wild blackberry, and dried tobacco. The palate has fresh baking spice followed by silky tannins - reminding us of childhood memories of picking wild berries on a summer afternoon.

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.

We made this Pinot Noir from clones native to the Dijon region of France; a climate not unlike the one we enjoy here in Monterey. Notes of cherry red fruit, vanilla cola, limestone and rich woody character of cedar join together to create this soft and light Pinot.

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.

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 is a big, robust wine with layers of cedar, cherry cola, baking spice, and lingering soft tannin. We aged 20% of this wine in new French Oak barrels for 18 months, with the balance in neutral oak, allowing the wine to integrate and round out. The result is a rich luscious wine that pairs well with big flavors and big personalities.
