OUR NEWEST RELEASE!
Hand harvested at peak ripeness of small, concentrated clusters, from middle-aged vines rooted in the red dirt of clay loam soils on a gentle slope between the rising foothills and the valley floor. Traditional fermentation with 21 days on the skins, followed by native malolactic fermentation over the first 6 months, stirred in barrel, with a total of 22 months aging in 100% new Darnajou, and Taransaud, French oak.
WINEMAKER AND PHILOSOPHY
Kirk Venge follows his father's creed, "making wine in the vineyard," and his grandfather's footsteps, on the Napa Valley soils where he was born and raised. Deep roots and decades’ experience have affirmed his approach from bud-break to barrel, from berry to bottle: “We garden our grapes.” An authentic taste of terroir…born in the vineyard, and raised in your glass.
