2018 Talking Animals Pet-Nat
This Pétillant Naturel is a living wine with live cultures and its flavor will continue to evolve as it ages. More like a craft beer than a glass of Champagne, this wine has a wonderful layers of stone fruit, lemon, and pear, along with a crisp, dry palate. It reminds us of a lemon cream pie with almond crust- delicious!
 
2019 Folktale Natural Chardonnay
Our Natural Chardonnay is made from organic grapes grown at Brosseau Vineyard in the Chalone AVA. The wine had no additions at harvest, minimal intervention, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered with low SO2. Brosseau Vineyard wines display a remarkable combination of limestone soils, weather patterns, and organic farming that produces intense minerality, texture, and richness. This chardonnay combines these qualities with notes of honey, tangerine, persimmon, canned peach, and banana followed by bright freesia, fresh straw, chalk and grapefruit pith. Balanced acidity with flavors coating every inch of your mouth… an incredible natural wine.
 
N.V. Folktale Orange Wine
Often referred to as “orange wine” the practice of leaving the grape skins to ferment with the pressed juice dates back thousands of years to the Caucasus region where Europe and Asia intersect. This ancient practice of extended skin contact during the fermentation of white wines produces a rich and complex wine with added tannins and phenols, and of course the distinctive amber, or “orange,” hue. This wine expands the pairing options of white wine. The bright acid and added tannic texture allows this white wine to pair well with bigger, bolder foods, similar to a light red wine. Lightly chill and enjoy this unique white wine experience.
 
2018 Le Mistral Whole Cluster Grenache
Le Mistral Whole Cluster Grenache is produced by fermenting intact clusters of grapes with minimal intervention. The results speak for themselves – exhibiting notes of mulberry, wild blackberry, and dried tobacco. The palate has fresh baking spice followed by silky tannins – reminding us of childhood memories of picking wild berries on a summer afternoon.
