Soil manager Bobby Cannard and Fred Cline are extremely dedicated to sustainable practices. Nothing is more important than how we treat our vines; the wine we make is a direct result of what we put into the ground. The Green String farming method developed by Fred and Bobby Cannard is a system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. These methods minimize pollution from the air, soil, and water, and optimize the health and productivity of soil, plants, animals and people. We make every effort to reduce soil erosion, and other harmful ecological footprints. Our self-nourishing system of minimal human intervention yields excellent quality crops.
Thirty years ago, Fred and Nancy Cline established their first vineyard in Oakley, California. This unique region runs along the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers, where warm days are cooled by the winds off the water. The vines root deep in the sand-soil and produce robust, intense fruit.
The unique blend in our Farmhouse white was cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks without malo-lactic fermentation. Following fermentation, the blend underwent a light filtration to preserve the flavors of the fruit and varietal characteristics.
This light to medium bodied, slightly sweet and perfectly balanced Farmhouse White wine has grapefruit, lemon curd, and lime flavors with a soft and lasting finish.
