This wine comes from Tres Hermanas, a dry farmed vineyard in Foxen Canyon. This area of Foxen Canyon, on the very northern tip of the Santa Barabra County AVA, is one of the only places within the region that can be truly dry farmed. It sits on top of a dry river bed in a long narrow valley that feeds the vineyard its rainfall throughout the winter months. Tres Hermanas has also been CCOF certified organic for many years. This wine’s label art will remind you that narrowleaf milkweed grows abundantly throughout the understory of this vineyard, making this a monarch friendly migratory corridor! 

More Info

This Grenache Blanc sits in the fog most summer mornings and was one of the last things to come in the cellar for harvest in 2022. The fruit was brought into the winery around 21 Brix. It was pressed directly without any skin maceration. The juice was sent to a tank to settle overnight, and then gravity racked to neutral French Oak barrels for fermentation with its native yeast. The wine rested on its fermentation lees until a month before bottling when it was racked together in a stainless steel tank. She was bottled unfined and unfiltered in June of 2023.

Tasting Notes

Delicate on the nose with a midpalate to fill you up. Floral and open with a bit of zip. Refreshing and very food friendly.

  • about the label

    My lovely mother, Eileen Anderson, painted the monarch caterpillar on narrow-leaf milkweed on the front and the metamorphosis on the back. The monarch imagery is meant to emphasize the importance of invertebrates and pollinators in our ecosystem. The monarchs made a huge population comeback in 2021, hence the new label art. This wine is a tribute to learning about the importance of native insects and their ecology. We encourage you to spread information about the importance of invertebrates, plant organic flowers for their benefit, and donate to invertebrate protection organizations if you are able to.
