The Sauvignon Blanc comes from Los Olivos AVA, situated 30 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in a unique horseshoe shaped valley. The position of the vineyard allows for light morning fog and very warm afternoons with quite cool light foggy nights, which allows the grapes achieve excellent sugar levels while maintaining acidity.

No additions or subtractions. Unfined, unfiltered, zero SO2.

A dry white wine, light + delicate. Notes of fresh oranges, apples and crisp minerals. Pairs well with radicchio salad with grilled zucchini.

5th generation Oakland native and 3rd generation winemaker, Chenoa Ashton-Lewis, and cinematographer, Will Basanta, got fully bitten by the winemaking bug in October of 2019 when last minute they bombed up to Sonoma Mountain from Los Angeles, on the news that Chenoa’s family vineyard still had unsold grapes that were quickly turning to bird fodder. With the help of family and friends they jumped in, picking and crushing to make an experimental Syrah and Pinot Noir co-ferment. The single barrel was then stored in a tent for 8 months on the family’s organic, 50-year-old vineyard, planted by Chenoa’s grandparents in the early 1970s.
