Winemakers Notes

I’ve recently fallen for Counoise and was lucky enough to come across this special vineyard on a mountain top over the Mendocino valley. Usually counoise on valley floor can make simpler wine but the fruit from this strained mountain top soil makes something of concentration and specificity. This was my favorite ferment I’ve ever experienced and it was my comfort place during harvest.
