winemaking: Our 2023 harvest was kick started by Melon de Bourgogne clusters arriving to our winery in early September. The Melon hails from an 1800 ft elevation site planted in 1985 on south facing decomposed granite and limestone soils of the Chalone appellation. The vineyard is located on the east side of Salinas Valley overlooking Monterey where days are warm and nights are cool with just the right coastal influence. The combination of high elevation mineral rich soils with healthy drainage and California sunshine creates the perfect grapes for us to produce a fresh white wine inspired by those of the same variety from the Eastern Loire Valley. Fruit was harvested overnight when the air is coolest and delivered to the winery early in the morning. The grapes were whole cluster pressed to a combination of concrete eggs and stainless steel where they underwent spontaneous fermentation and eventual sur lie élevage.
