Fanucchi Road Vineyard
 
Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard

This may just be the coolest vineyard we've ever sourced from. At the very least, it contains some of the rarest grapes found in California – Trousseau Gris. This ten-acre parcel tucked into the Russian River Valley is the only planting of this unique varietal in the United States.

You may recognize this grape from our notorious skin-fermented white wine, Skin Flick. Sometimes referred to as "Grey Riesling," Trousseau Gris thrives in the breezy coastal climate of the Russian River Valley AVA.

Peter Fanucchi comes from a long line of grape growers. After his father acquired the Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard in 1972, the two traveled to Lucca, Italy to learn the craft of tending to vines from Peter's grandfather. Peter's meticulous attention to detail truly shows in the fruit produced each season. We are honored to source these highly sought after grapes for our wines.

We have news for you – we're cranking things up a notch this year with a release of a 100% skin-fermented Trousseau Gris that is going to blow your minds. Be excited, because this is a wine you are going to want to get your hands on. We'll be bottling it at the end of May, so keep your eyes peeled this summer for the official release.

Meet Heath, The OG in the Garage.

What Tank Garage Wine are you obsessed with?

Wasted Love is my primer, especially now because it’s starting to get warm. It’s crisp and cold (sip it during shower time) and perfect for selecting vinyl and cooking. 

Love Now More Than Ever is my favorite for late night – no decanting necessary. It’s super welcoming and salacious. Pop the cork and it’s ready to go with soft tannins, low acidity, and rich macerated fruit with a long lingering finish of caramelized cherry and cola.

Favorite varietal?
Ugh! I can’t do it. It’s like asking me to pick my favorite music genre. While I do prefer blends, I often gravitate to Grenache. It’s light-to-medium-bodied. It’s also very food versatile. It’s not a grape that you can over oak, which is my preference. It’s a bit of a chameleon. Depending on its region, it can be so different. 

What's your dream?
Well, it was to make a living touring and playing music. Now, more practical: buy a mid-century modern home in San Diego near our friends, work less, play more music, and travel.

Favorite band?
Again, impossible for me to do. Sorry, but it changes often. In constant rotation, everything from Jazz/Blues, The Ramones to Chris Isaak

Favorite local restaurant?
I’ll give you two:
Sushi Mambo - order the fungus among us
Sam’s Social Club - order the burger

Top 3 songs to listen to right now?
Desperado – The Cactus Blossoms
Rio – Low Cut Connie
Crying’s Just A Thing You Do – JD McPherson

What are you doing when you're not at the Garage?
You’ll find me at my turntable spinning vinyl, chillin' on the patio with the fam or playing music. I have pretty simple needs.
