Casa Verde Vineyard
This magical, 75 year old vineyard, sits on a bench at the base of the eastern foothills of Redwood Valley. It is comprised of a field blend of red grapes. Carignane and Grenache make up the bulk of the block, along with 230 French Colombard vines planted intermittently and harvested separately for a varietal white wine. The alluvial soil is Yokayo Series. Peter Chevalier farms these ancient, dry farmed, head pruned vines traditionally, cross cultivating and hand hoeing under the vines. One and a half tons of red grapes were hand picked on September 23, 2014.

Wine Making
Grapes were destemmed into an open top tank without pumping to ensure a large proportion of whole berries. Native yeast fermentation began four days later and was complete within two weeks. Only free run juice was drained to barrels, three year old Francois Freres. Native malolactic took a full year to complete. The wine was racked only once, to the bottling tank. We bottled on August 4, 2016.
