THIS WINE’S STORY

From the David Girard Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills, certified organically farmed.

Made in the traditional carbonic method, 14 days of enzymatic fermentation and then a light foot tread to finish fermentation. This wine has no added S02 and was aged in neutral oak for 6 months before bottling.

This is a delicate fruit forward wine, to be served chilled or cellar temperature. Native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered.
