2016 Grenache Blanc, a Two Shepherds Fields - Family Wines Collaboration
This collaboration wine brings together two passion projects: Two Shepherds of Sonoma, and Fields Family Wines of Lodi. Winemakers William and Ryan share a love of Rhone wines, and strive to highlight many of its relatively unknown grapes grown in California. With only an acre of Grenache Blanc in the Russian River Valley and less than 20 acres in Lodi, this wine illustrates the potential of both cool and Mediterranean climate Grenache Blanc in California. Both wines are fermented with native yeast, 50% fermented in stainless steel, 50% in neutral barrel, then aged 7 months in neutral barrel.
