Nature’s wine seltzer-slightly tart, dry with great berry hints. Serve chilled, great right out of the can, pairs well with summer picnics, parks and beaches!

Using carbonic Carignan skins that come from their ‘Wiley’ carbonic. The clusters are only 20% fermented after 2.5 weeks, leaving residual sugar and flavor. The pressed skins are re-hydrated with a little pressed juice added back. That sits for 5 days then is pressed off to stainless to finish fermentation. A small portion of the whole cluster Carignan skins are also used. Aged 8 months in stainless steel.

Trimble Vineyard is a 75-year-old, 10-acre head-trained, dry farmed, organically certified vineyard that Two Shepherds leases half of. This area is much cooler than the rest of Hopland and enjoys a 30 to 40 degree diurnal shift at night.
