This wine is a celebration of everything new, especially our newest addition to the family -- our little Patatino! It seemed fitting to release our first nouveau the same year that we had our first child, a different kind of harvest. Fun fact: Patatino means little potato in Italian and is what some Italian mamas call their babes. Traditionally nouveau is a celebration of the end of harvest in France’s Beaujolais region. As a nod to the winemaking techniques of Beaujolais Nouveau production, we fermented a portion of the Nero d’Avola using carbonic maceration (whole cluster grapes, sealed into a tank filled with carbon dioxide). The resulting wine is fresh, fruit-forward, low in tannin, and ready for early consumption. With this release we also celebrate all of the bounty that the 2019 season brought us -- grapes came in super healthy and in high numbers! We wanted to capture this quality of the 2019 harvest, and nouveau is a great way to take a vintage snapshot before the wine is influenced by aging.

Where do you ship?

We ship to every state except AK, HI, UT, KY, AL, AR.

The delivery service will make three attempts before returning the shipment to our fulfillment center. Note that there will be a restocking fee for returned shipments.

What are the shipping costs?

Martha Stoumen Wines was founded upon the desire to recapture a farming and winemaking culture that has all but faded away: a winemaking culture of patience. 

For my wines I lease and farm around half of the vineyards myself. The other half are farmed by multi-generation farmers who understand their land, and their family's land, far better than I ever will, and who farm with my same philosophies in mind. Patience in the vineyard means composting rather than adding synthetic fertilizers, allowing predatory insects the ability to outcompete pests rather than spraying insecticides, and doing proper handwork, such as pruning for vine longevity rather than high yields.

In the cellar I use a minimalist winemaking approach. Patience in the cellar means letting the natural yeast and bacteria present on the grape skins perform fermentation, and allowing longer macerations and aging to provide stability rather than using added tannin, acid, or stabilizing agents in my wines. Above all, I strive to make wines that are delicious, joyful, and truly representative of California.
