There’s no place quite like home, so for this one, we’re repping the ‘hood hardcore. Calistoga produces some of the best Grenache in the entire world. During the daytime, our vines are obliterated by heat, but come nightfall, they’re chilled to the bone. This emotional roller coaster produces Grenache that oozes with depth, soul and flavor. Now, never to be basic, we decided to whole-cluster ferment the grapes, meaning we left them on their stems during the fermentation process. This old world process adds an earthy complexity to the wine that we know you’ll really dig.
We didn’t plan on making this wine, but after the Northern California wildfires ripped through our community in October 2017, we knew we had to. Facing Fire honors the people of Napa and Sonoma county; those that fought, those that lost everything and those that extended a helping hand. Featuring a rag-tag bucket brigade, our label captures the brave efforts and spirit of a community that refused to back down in the face of devastation. We would like to thank artist Kathleen Judge, MCC Labels and Outshinery for their generous contributions to this project. A portion of the proceeds from this wine will go to victims of the California wildfires.
Thanks for your support.
