From the producer: Each varietal was harvested separately and whole cluster pressed for barrel fermentation.The Vernaccia was fermented in 75-gallon stainless steel barrels and the Pinot Grigio in neutral oak using native, ambient yeasts. Barrels were aged sur-lie for 6 months and then racked for bottling.The Vernaccia comes from a very small vineyard in Carneros known as Santo Giordano. Native to Tuscany, it is often the base or sole varietal for the dry, aromatic white wines from in and around the Chianti region. The Pinot Grigio comes from Morning Sun Ranch on Sonoma Mountain. We blended in one barrel to provide acidity and its signature high toned aromatics.
We are a limited production, family-owned operation. Every barrel counts. These wines are bottled in homage of a beloved family matriarch, Auntie Doris. She was our family’s Italian American Julia Child. Travel, garden, cook, eat, drink, repeat. She always exhibited the motto “Work to live, don’t live to work.” After our wines finish fermenting, we separate barrels to age from barrels to blend. The barrels for aging are put aside for an extended élevage and the remaining are blended for early release as Doris.
Made by brothers originally from Rhode Island. 80% Vernaccia, 20% Pinot Grigio fermented with native..
