This 100% Vermentino is a solid white wine with an impeccable pedigree. Grown in the prestigious Paso Ono Vineyard of Paso Robles, California, the vines thrive in sandy, well-draining soil resulting in small berries and more concentrated flavors. Hand-picked in the early morning to retain optimal acidity, the grapes were introduced directly to the press upon arrival to the winery. Following a gentle press, the juice was then transferred to our 80-gallon Amphora tank made of terracotta clay. Both the fermentation process as well as the aging of this wine occurred in the Amphora vessel, remaining on its lees for nearly five months until the wine was bottled in late March. The process of making this wine was as natural and minimalist as possible, using the porous clay of the amphora to stabilize the temperature while concurrently introducing small amounts of oxygen to further enhance the wine’s complexity and showcase the truest qualities of the fruit.
