White Wine

We are honored to offer you this special wine, in tribute to Saralee Kunde, who left us in 2014. Saralee was an unparalleled leader and heroine in Sonoma County agriculture, and a personal inspiration. Catie's Corner is named for her daughter.  This vineyard was the first planting in the Russian  River, made possible by Saralee's commitment to varietal diversity.

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".

Do NOT let the age of this wine fool you, it's showing insanely young and vibrant. Roussanne is a variety, that when well made, easily lasts 10+ years.

Our current release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (45%) blended with 30% Marsanne, 20% Viognier,  and 5% Grenache Blanc.

This year's complex blend is 12.5% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and textured, yet aromatic and complex. Bottled aged for 4 years!

Enjoy during dungeness crab season on the west coast, and also pairs beautifully with lobster, scallops and similar fare.

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 great winter white.

Windmill Vineyard is a new partner for us, in the Dunnigan Hills AVA. Besides widely planted to many Rhone and Bordeaux varieties, it’s rolling hills and gravelly alluvial soils has a wonderful polyculture also growing and farming organically an array of fruit trees.

This tiny lot of Viognier is inspired by the Northern Rhone. Bright, vibrant, textural, with fresh acidity, without the overly floral aspects of (too) many California Viognier. Previous vintage described as “a prototype for how to get the grape right in CA” by SF Chronicle Wine Writer Jon Bonné. 35 cases made.

Our last vintage of Viognier!
