Fermentation for each lot was 100% whole cluster as well as spontaneous for both primary and malolactic. They employed a light food treading during maceration followed by gentle pumpovers over the course of fermentation. After two and a half weeks on their skins, each lot was pressed off into neutral French oak. Lots were racked together after 10 months in barrel (sur lie). Four month later, the wine was bottled after a light filtration.

The Sceales Vineyard was planted in the cobbled soils of Alexander Valley around 1954 and has been passionately farmed by Ralph Sceales for over 40 years. These vines are head trained and dry farmed. Atlas Piedras is the winery’s single vineyard Grenache whose vines were planted in the metavolcanic rock of the foothills of Eastern Alexander Valley. The centenarian vines of the Pato Vineyard were planted in pure, beach-like sand near the California Delta before Prohibition. Like Sceales, the vines are head trained and dry farmed.
