TINGA PIE

The wet, cool spring delayed bloom in the vineyard until late June, setting the stage for a welcome later harvest than the previous few. Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer months, which prompted a great deal of thinning. Sometimes it looked like half the crop was on the ground! We kicked off our 2017 harvest on September 27th with Chardonnay. After that, we waited. We like to make sure each vineyard has a chance to fully ripen so the flavors are as rich and complex as possible. Once we really got started though, all that fruit started coming in droves! We had to hold off picking sometimes to find places to put it. Hirschy is our warmest site and it came in with 20% more fruit than expected. Next came Daffodil Hill at 2 ½ tons per acre. On and on it went. We appreciated the cool, dry weather, which allowed us more time. It also helped keep the acidity high and the pH low, lending great structure to the wines.

SUSTAINABLY FARMED

We make wines that reflect the character of the land where they’re grown, using only naturally cultivated yeast and sustainable farming practices.

NO SUGAR ADDED

Any sugar in our wines is completely natural and comes from the grapes themselves, not added. This is known as residual sugar, or what’s left after fermentation. Typically, it is merely trace amounts.

VEGAN

100% Plant-Based. No animal products are used in making our wines.

LOW IN SULFITES

Sulfur is a natural by-product of grape fermentation. To maintain freshness and prevent harmful bacteria from occurring, we add minimal sulfur (100 parts per million) to the wine. By comparison, this is significantly less sulfur found on any dried fruit like raisins or apricots.

WITHOUT ADDITIVES

We let the grapes speak for themselves.
We never add any color, flavoring, alcohol or preservatives other than sulfur, to our wines.

GLUTEN FREE

No products containing gluten are used in making our wines.
