"We’ve been buying grapes from the Evangelho vineyard for many years.  These vines are now approaching 140-years-old, we get only a few tons each vintage.  We  ferment the fruit naturally, in an open-top fermenter, using only native, wild yeast. The grapes are all crushed by foot – not machine – and after a 45-day maceration, the wine is aged for one year in neutral French oak barrels.  We bottle it unfiltered. 

The finished wine offers much of what I found charming in the Carignan of French wine producer, Maxime Magnon, and the bright, fresh flavors introduce an element rarely seen in wines made from other varieties." - Bruce Neyers
