100% Vermentino. We planted the vines in 2011 to match the sunny climate and gravelly clay soils of the Windmill Vineyard. It is a much warmer inland location than the more well-known coastal regions of Napa and Sonoma, and Mediterranean varieties perform beautifully there. We ferment the juice in old neutral barrels, and then, to explore the nutty and savory side of the Vermentino grape grown in a hot climate on these gravelly soils, we aged the wine for 54 months, sur lees, in the same barrels, with no racking or stirring.
