Le Artishasic

Redwood Valley, Mendocino, CA

70 year old Carignan grape are de-stemmed and cold soaked for seven days. Low temperature fermentations begin in small tanks and bins, preserving soft and delicate aromatics. Gentle punch downs incorporate skins to intensify color and flavor. The wine is then aged for 30 months in seasoned French Oak barrels, to promote natural aromas and flavors, over oak impact. This project is a collaboration with experiences Napa winemaker, Aaron Buoncristiani.

70 Year Old Vine Carignan, Vincenzo Vineyard, Redwood Valley, CA

Grower Steve Graziano'a "bisnonno" or grat grandfather in English, planted this vineyard over 70 years ago. These were some of the first vineyards planted by this Italian family in Northern California, over four generations ago. Vincenzo vineyard is dry farmed and only yields two tons of grpaes per acre. Roots go 30-40 feet down in sandy loam soils to search for water. We have selected the highese elevated section of this vineyard, providing even more prominent drainage for these old vines.
