SAFE SHIPPING TIP: Summer weather is challenging for safely shipping natural wine. We strongly prefer a business address where an adult is available to sign on the first delivery attempt which avoids our unfiltered wines riding around on a hot truck all day.
These Syrah vines grow on a hilltop in the remote Mendocino Ridge where the vineyards are only a few miles from the Pacific, among the majestic Redwoods and wildlife. Of our three vineyard designate Syrahs, Perli is the most voluptuous as the vines sit above the fog line. But make no mistake, this is still a textbook Donkey & Goat with tension and subtlety and above all else, food friendly!
