Four generations ago, there was the first Jane in our family: Our great, great grandmother. Jane was strong. She swore only when needed. She worked hard, she did things right and she always wore lipstick. The unofficial matriarch of our family. Jane was the woman we all aspire to become.
Ever since we’ve given each girl in our family the same middle name: Her name. Jane. It’s a constant reminder to be brave. To do things right. To be more like Jane.
Today, we craft delicious wine under a similar name: Middle Jane. We do this because everything our wine represents just so happens to be everything she represented: Honesty. Passion. And a commitment to doing things with integrity. That’s how Jane would have done it.
This dry-farmed vineyard in the Alexander Valley has been family-owned by the Stones for 40+ years. The nearby Pacific Ocean influences the climate resulting in wet, cool winters and hot, dry summers. This climate helps to preserve the freshness and acidity of the grapes.
The grapes for this wine were hand-picked from 20 to 28-year-old vines. The juice fermented with native yeast in stainless steel tanks for 16 days. The wine then aged for 19 months in neutral French oak barrels before being bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
Did You Know? Negroamaro is a red wine grape that is native to Southern Italy and grows in abundance in Puglia…but *almost* nowhere else. This Alexander Valley-planting is one of the only ones outside of Italy.
