Hiyu is winemaker, Nate Ready, a former master sommelier in various fine establishments, including the lauded Thomas Keller’s French Laundry in Napa Valley and his partner, China Tresemer, the estate’s co-founder and agriculturalist. She is also a talented illustrator who paints all of the labels.

Nate on this wine: “Eventyr, is a small vineyard planted to Albariño on an extinct shield volcano called Underwood Mountain. It’s always the last block we harvest. Even in a warm vintage, the wine retains surreal levels of acidity and the aromatics are correspondingly intense. The name Eventyr means “adventure” or “folktale” in Danish and Norwegian.”

Making of: The grapes were hand-picked the first week of November, then macerated in upright wood vats for 9 days. Just as the fermentation was ready to take-off, the grapes were pressed into a large wooden upright for the primary duration of the fermentation process. After the sugar was consumed, the wine was pressed into barrel, where it continued to ferment for another 6 months.

Personality: “Honey and the Flowers from an Alpine meadow, but also mango and a patisserie at dawn. This wine always tastes more like dry GG Riesling than Albariño and this vintage takes the feeling to baroque heights held in only by the wines ultimately Alpine identity. Culture: The alluring glow of southern light invading the darkest recesses of the cathedral.”
