White Wine

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 "

Our FINAL vintage of our flagship white Rhone blend. This vintage we broke the tradition of Roussanne being the leading variety, as the 2016 Viognier was especially good, and bright and we blended in some Vermentino for the first time.

This new blend is 45% Viognier, 25% Roussanne, 25% Marsanne,   and 5% Vermentino. The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, in Russian River Valley.

We invested in th 4 years of cellar aging to allow this wine to shine, and its a youthful experience, once again belaying the myth that white wines don't age.

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!

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.

From the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, Russian River planting, this small less than 1 acre planting of Roussanne is the only one in the entire AVA. The cool climate creates a bright expression of Roussanne, while keeping its richer texture. Only one barrel, 25 cases made.

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.
