Turning Lemons into Lemonade… Or in this case Turning Raisins into Rosé

While it would be great to have per­fect weath­er all the time, the heat spikes in 2020 proved chal­leng­ing to both our vines and our wine­mak­ing team. Risked with the pos­si­bil­i­ty of los­ing some of our most val­ued crop, the 2020 Block Eight Rosé and 2020 Block Six Rosé rose like a Phoenix out of the ash­es. Many thanks to our wine­mak­ing team and crew for turn­ing what would have been raisins into epic Rosé wines.

It has been five years since we have released a wine under our val­ue dri­ven label Big Hands. The most obvi­ous ques­tion is why haven’t any of these wines been pro­duced? To under­stand the answer to that ques­tion, we must first explain how our wines are crafted.
