2021 Pinot Gris ramato
Skin Fermented

2021 Pinot Gris ramato

The latest release of our most popular orange wine, unfortunately in shorter supply this year with vineyard yield down 50% from drought. This also contributes to this vintage being a slightly darker, almost red color, and a more intense savory notes.

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! 12.1 alc, 260 cases crafted.

The 2019 was featured in the NY Times by  Eric Asimov in 'The Polarizing Power of Orange Wine'  and in Bloomberg by wine writer Elin McCoy as 'The Best 50 Wines under $50, 2019'
