Story

“JJ discovered this vineyard while working with scholium project. They get their Naucratis (Verdelho) and Riquewihr (Gewürztraminer) from lost slough. The vineyard is located in the Sacramento river delta and was once below sea level, you can witness this in the sandy soil littered with shells fragments. This gives the wine a great saline quality which compliments the Albariño. We have been making wine from this vineyard since 2009. A perfect blend of subtle richness combined with citrus flower and honey notes.” - Winemaker’s Notes
