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

Magnums! Only 12 made.

Trousseau Gris is an incredibly rare, grey skinned variety.

The 2015 vintage was a shift in style and closer to  an “orange” wine, more tannic, structure, slight oxidation. Very different than the 2017-2019, but beloved by orange wine 'purists.' 

100% whole cluster, foot tread, adding more complexity, tannin, and a deeper orange color. Five days of skin skin contact before pressing to barrel.
