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.
It was bound to happen. After making wine in Berkeley for 11 years how could we not finally head to the nearby Napa Valley for fruit. The vines are farmed by Steve Matthiasson and we were lucky enough to get a little in 2014 and a bit more in 2015.

Notes of lemon brioche, green apples and honey with just a kiss of herbal notes on the nose. We aged in once used French Oak barrels which lends the wine a more lavish style with depth and texture balanced by bright acidity.
