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!

(For now) our last vintage of 100% Mourvedre bottled as a single variety. From 125 year old vines in the arid sand of Antioch, head trained and dry farmed.  Only 3 barrels, 75 cases made.  On the lighter side for Mourvedre, savory and bursting with red fruits.

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.

From a 75 year old vineyard, head trained, dry farmed, certified organic. Elegant and aromatic, juicy and easy drinking, with soft structure from 50% whole cluster, perhaps more akin to Cru Beaujolais than Carignan.     

A great winter red for pairing with ribs, stews, or simply by the fire with Netflix or a book.  12.2% alc

 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, normally best as a blending grape.

Always 100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 10 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called an example of “delightful, delicious wine from under-appreciated grapes." 

Unfortunately only 1.5 barrels, 30 cases crafted in 2016.

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

Highlighted in Forbes by Michelle Williams' article What's The Deal With Orange Wine? as as wine "demonstrating the age-ability of this category" with "structure, depth, and elegance uncommon in this category. Food pairings only limited by imagination."

This syrah is a one off, single barrel lot. Owned by our friend down the street, we picked a 1/2 ton just because....

It's quite pretty and light, with notes of blueberry, white pepper, a great every day drinking wine, for those who like the more delicate side of syrah.  Only 25 cases made.
