alpine wines

 

Our wines are an expression of the season.  Each vintage may herald slightly different bottlings, and even wines that we tend to make every year will show variation from vintage to vintage.  This intrigues us.  We work in the field and cellar as minimally as possible, as guides and companions. We believe that terroir encompasses geology, geography, microclimate, varietal, culture, and the human hand.  Wine cannot make itself just like a dish of roasted carrots or an aged cow's milk cheese cannot.  Our job is to accompany and support the wine throughout its life in the vineyard and our cantina.  

Our fruit is handpicked and sorted, foot crushed through pigeage.  We employ glass demijohns and old barrels.  We hope some day to have an anfora.  We rely on the native yeast found on our fruit, the result of a happy marriage of field and fermentation.  We use little to no sulphite at bottling.  It depends on the wine and the season. Currently in release, we have the first of the 2014 wines with more on the way.

***Please note that we have wines in the marketplace that may no longer be available through the farm.  Please see stockists nearest you for inquiries about what might be available to you locally.

We currently do not have a license to ship wine, but you can order wine to be shipped from the stock available at Frankly Wines in NYC. {franklywines.com}
