Before there was the vineyard or the tasting room, there was the field house. It was the very first purchase we made as a company. Initially, the field house was pretty shabby, so we began updating it with things from our past. Cabinetry from our house growing up. Corrugated tin and restored molding from an old family barn. Doors we clearly remember slamming open and shut as teenagers. In no time, this bare-bones building began to resemble something familiar. Something comfortable. Something ours.
Ever since, the field house has been more than just a field house. It's a reminder. Of our humble beginnings. Of our family values. Of our commitment to crafting wine cleanly and consciously. And the result is a simple, honest, delicious bottle of wine as true to our roots and passion as the field house is. We hope you love it as much as we do.
The Merlot grapes for this wine were hand-picked from 15-year-old vines, while the Carignan grapes were hand-picked from dry-farmed vines that are over 75 years old! The vineyards sit alongside the Russian River, where the morning fog, shaded oak trees, and wind from the river have a cooling effect.
After picking, the grapes were sorted by hand and fermented whole-cluster on native yeasts for 2 weeks before aging in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
