Lolonis Vineyard
This historic vineyard sits on a bench at the base of the eastern foothills of Redwood Valley. A smattering of head pruned Sémillon vines are interplanted amongst black varieties. The alluvial soil is Yokayo Series. Athan Poulos farms these old, dry farmed, head pruned vines organically and traditionally, cross cultivating and hand hoeing under the vines. We picked on September 16, 2017.

Wine Making
The fruit was whole cluster pressed and settled. It was racked to 3 year old Francois Fréres barrels; native primary fermentation was complete within three weeks. Malolactic fermentation was naturally inhibited. The lees were stirred weekly for three months, and finally the wine was racked to tank and bottled on March 9, 2017.
