  • Winemaker: Martha Stoumen
  • Terroir: 63% Benson Ranch Vineyard, Ukiah, Mendocino County: 14 year old dry farmed (no irrigation) vines, gravelly loam soil. 25% Fox Hill Vineyard, Talmage Bench, Mendocino County: 33 year old vines (as far as we know the oldest Nero d’Avola in CA), sandy loam soils. 12% Chiarito Vineyard, Ukiah, Mendocino County: we purchased fruit in 2018 but took over the vineyard lease and farming in 2019; 27-year old vines, head trained, no till, loam soil.
  • Farming: All three vineyards are farmed according to organic principles without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fungicides.
  • Variety: 100% Nero d'Avola
  • Vinification: Destemmed, fermented in concrete tank until dry. Pressed and put to neutral barrel on lees. After 12 months: racked off lees, vineyard components blended, and put back to barrel for a total of 18 months barrel aging.
  • Tasting Note: Intoxicating nose; versatile and balanced with both bright acidity and dark forest fruit; dusty tannins that are approachable now, but this wine can also be aged; elegant and precise.
