Skin Fermented - 'Orange' Wines

 

Dolce and Sofia, our affable miniature Sicilian donkeys inspired this wine. Destemmed and left on the skins to start a native yeast fermentation, then after 5 days pressed to finish fermentation and aged in neutral French barrels. The 5 days of skin contact impart a copper hue, reminiscent of Italian Ramato. The taste is uniquely its own, landing somewhere between an orange wine and a rosé.

Fun and fresh, with lingering savory notes. A wine as unique as our Dolce. Hee Haw!

 Picked early expressly for rosé at 20 Brix to ensure its lively nature, this Rosé offers a vibrant expression of Carignan. 

This 60 case lot of rosé comes from a 75 year old, head trained, dry farmed, organically certified vineyard in Hopland, Mendocino.  We are very excited to be able to lease half of this vineyard, working closely with the 2nd generation grower.

Fermented with native yeast, aged 100% stainless steel, 50% neutral barrel. A fresh, vibrant wine that can be enjoyed all year long, perhaps our best rosé yet.

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized? This is a gentler, more approachable orange wine. 

Centime, French for Penny, is Two Shepherds small annual production of skin fermented Rhone white wines, known as "orange" wine, because of the color the skin contact gives. The 2016 release is 100% Grenache Blanc from Santa Ynez, our final release from this AVA. 60 cases crafted

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 release, this vintage is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.  

Note! Sold out sorry. 2019 is bottled but needs a few more months, look for late summer, early fall release!
