Our First 1NGREDIENT Red Wine

We intro­duced 1NGREDIENT wines in 2020 as a part of our evo­lu­tion as wine­mak­ers, com­bin­ing our years of wine­grow­ing and wine­mak­ing expe­ri­ence with the goal of mak­ing wines exclu­sive­ly from one ingre­di­ent, cer­ti­fied Bio­dy­nam­ic wine grapes. While our ini­tial bot­tlings under this label were white wines, we are very excit­ed to expand into red wines with the release of the 2019 1NGREDIENT Syrah.

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.
