Vinification

Our Grenache is sourced from Lake County, which is about an hour & a half North of Napa. Clear Lake, the largest natural lake in California, is at its center, and then the vines are planted around the lake at a higher altitude. These grapes are coming from the Two Brothers Vineyard which is an 81 acre property growing 9 different grape varietals. It’s a hillside property between 1650 to 1900 feet with deep red volcanic soils, and stunning views of Clear Lake & Mount Konocti. The 2022 growing season was consistent & mild, until an extended heat wave beginning in late August divided the season into earlier & later picks.  In both instances, we received lower yields than expected, but the fruit we received was very high quality, with strong structure and terroir-driven characteristics. Once the fruit arrived in Oceanside, we destemmed and processed it here on site
