A fun three pack of "unicorn" wines, that are very rare. Ten % off the bundle, stacks with Flock club discounts.

1. 2019 Picpoul - only 54 acres in CA. A perfect winter white, nice acidity combined with great weight, and texture.

2. 2019 Trousseau Gris - one of the rarest grapes on the planet, only one planting in CA. 5 days of skin contact for salty, easy going entry into orange wines.

3 2018 Pinot Meunier - our most popular red released in Fall, rare as a still wine. Perhaps our most complex, layered, subtle red yet, while still being lighter and low alcohol. If you like well made Pinot from Burgundy, you will love this.

Buy two, or stack with another bundle, to take advantage of our COVID shipping specials: free in CA, flat rate $20 the rest of the US with code 'flat20'.

Our third vintage of our wildly popular Pinot Meunier!  In our opinion the best yet, with the silkiness of the 2015, and the structure of the 2016. This variety is rarely found as a still wine, and often abused when it is. It’s a delicate wine that doesn't respond well to heavy oak, thus perfectly suited for our light hand.  The goat logo pays tribute to finding this vineyard when getting our two goats.  Only 100 cases made.

Magnum! Only 12 made.

Trousseau Gris is a very obscure grey skinned variety, originally from the Jura in France, and a 'unicorn' even there. The famed Fanucchi Vineyard is the only planting of Trousseau Gris in California, with a total of just 10 acres planted over 40 years ago. The Fanucchi Vineyard is adjacent to our farm in Fulton, which is how William first started making Trousseau Gris, first for personal consumption, and then by demand, he aquiesced into allowing a non-Rhone a part of our portolio.

 Fermented the first 5 days on the skins, this release has a medium orange, pink color, intense aromatics of a white, and the texture of a light red, basically refusing to be put in a category. Total Lot: 125 cases

Magnum, only 6 made!

This special 35 case lot from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi,  the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety. 100% whole cluster, 13.3% alc.

Magnum! Only 12 made.

Our first ever Carignan, and we couldn't be more delighted. As you might expect from Two Shepherds, a completely different expression of this variety. Light, bright, vibrant, with a hint of structure from some whole cluster during fermentation. Light red in color, only 12.3% alcohol. More akin to Cru Beaujolais from Burgundy, than a Rhone. 

Farmed at the Trimble Vineyard in Mendocino, this gorgeous 75 year old block is head trained, dry farmed, and organically certified.

A unique wine from an obscure grey skinned grape, originally from the Jura.  The grapes are the only planting in CA, from a 40 year old vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Fermented with native yeast on the skins for five days to extract color, flavor and texture, then aged in neutral barrels for 6 months.  Similar to the 2017 and 2018 releases, this vintage is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.

Our 4th release of Vermentino (also known as Rolle in Southern France.) This 11 barrel, 275 case lot was fermented and aged in 50% stainless steel, and 50% neutral barrel for 6 months. Fresh and gulpable, mouthwatering acidity, and nice weight, texture that belies the low 11.1% alcohol. Organically farmed, no additions save a small amount of sulfur.

Featured in April 2020 in the San Francisco Chronicle by Esther Mobley and in September 2020 by Michelle Williams in Forbes as one of the "Six Reasons To Fall In Love With Vermentino".

Farmed organically.  Native to southern France, the name means ‘lip stinger’ – a naturally high acid white grape perfect for our wine style. This 6 barrel lot was fermented and aged in 50% stainless steel, and 50% neutral puncheon (double sized barrel) for 8 months. Mouthwatering acidity, weight and aromatics. 12.1% alc. 

The wine has nice acidity, but also great texture, weight and mouthfeel, making it a complex white. Vinography agrees:  "..crisp and juicy but with a richness of flavor that makes it a bit more serious than you expect it to be when you first put it in your mouth...bright lemony and grapefruit citrus flavors are sharp and juicy thanks to excellent acidity. There’s also a hint of candle wax to the flavor and a faintly honeyed richness "
