*2016 Valdiguié, Solano County, Green Valley*
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Valdiguié (pronounced in many different ways) was formerly known as Napa Gamay in California. All grapes went through carbonic maceration, making this wine fresh and ready to be enjoyed. We even suggest a slight chill to make it go down even easier. Pure GLOU GLOU!!
VINEYARD NOTES: We sourced from three vineyards for 2016— Frei Vineyard, Wirth Vineyard and a small amount from V. Sattui Vineyard. The Frei and the Wirth vineyards were planted in 1948 and 1950, respectively, and are less than a mile apart from each other in Solano County’s Green Valley, located southeast of Napa. The Wirth Vineyard is planted on steep-sloped, iron-rich soil, while the Frei Vineyard is located closer to the valley floor and has more acidic soils. The vineyards are dry farmed and the vines are on average of 60 years old.
ALC: 12% alcohol
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 1,100 cases
All of our wines are made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts or bacteria. We use only native yeast to spark fermentation. We do not add any powdered tannins or enzymes. A minimal dose of S02 is added 4 weeks before bottling to some wines.
