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 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.
Fieldhouse White Wine is sourced from McDowell Valley Vineyard, which is in the McDowell Valley AVA, one of the smallest and coldest AVA’s in Mendocino County. The vines are over 30-years old and are planted at 1100 feet of elevation. The soil is predominately sandy loam, which means it drains well. Picked slightly underripe, the grape retained more acidity than is typical for this varietal.
The wine was fermented and aged for five months in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak barrels.
Did You Know? Viognier (vee-own-yay) originally hails from southern France and is a true labor of love: it’s hard to grow, has small berries, is low yielding and its opulent aromas and flavors demand careful winemaking. But when it’s well-grown and well-made, Viognier is irresistible.
