A singular wine made from a blend of native California grapes dating back to pre-prohibition. Spice-tinged aromas of dark cherry and a zippy palate, floral and spicy.

Variety: Napa Gamay (Valdigue), Black Malvoisie (Cinsault), Pinot St. George (Négrette)
Vineyards: Siletto Family, Homestead Hill, Shell Creek
Location: California Central Coast
Alcohol: 12.8%

A deep, vivid magenta color with vibrant, spice-tinged aromas of dark cherry and bay leaf with a zippy palate of lavender, elderberry and cracked pepper flavors.

Fermentations are performed by native yeasts with whole cluster inclusion, and without the use of sulphur. The cool fermentations and long macerations occur in old oak casks. Cap management by hand, promoting careful infusion into the wine. One careful racking and a light sulphuring in the springtime are the only winemaking maneuvers performed.

With the debut vintage of Slamdance Kooperatieve, Daniel Callan intended to show consumers an inherently California wine. To him, this meant an honest and intuitive expression of California’s viticultural origins. Daniel lives in Paso Robles where he works as an assistant winemaker at Thatcher. This wine is modeled after the old “California Burgundy”-type that was once a staple of California’s wine industry. Dating back as early as the 1880s, the old California Burgundies were stylistic blends of grapes that are now mostly lost to history: Napa Gamay, Black Malvoisie, Pinot St. George, Cabernet Pfeffer, Crabb’s Black, Bastardo, Mission. The wine is a blend of 12 varieties, each of which has a history in California that can be traced back to before Prohibition. Coming from three sites: Siletto Family Vineyard (12%) established 1988, Homestead Hill (32%), established 2016, and Shell Creek (56%), established 1875. The vineyards are very well-farmed, coming from sites that are either certified organic, or farmed without chemical inputs (uncertified organic).
