We love "the new California wine" because these winemakers adopt the very best practices from the Old World—practices developed from hundreds of years of tradition—and then throw away the rulebook to make batshit-crazy deliciousness. Case in point: Vinca Minor's unholy trinity of "Carignan, Petite Sirah, Gewürztraminer." Here, as in all their wines, Vinca Minor is organically dry-farming old vines—not only an ecologically responsible approach given California's water crisis, but also a tried-and-true technique for maximizing flavor and concentration in the wine. That being said, how the hell do you even think to combine these three varieties? The Old World's sacrilege is the New World's genius. And the juice is pure California attitude: bright, cheerful, easygoing, with good acid and great fruit (cranberries, Morello cherry, pink grapefruit). God bless America.

The Producer

About Vinca Minor

Vinca Minor's approach is simple. They believe that great wine starts in the vineyards and is born of great farming. That is why we have sought out and partnered with historic vineyards and families in Northern California. Families who settled and planted the original vines and have been farming them for generations. We have fallen in love with the history and the community we have found through wine. We feel privileged to be part of this next generation of wine makers who are fearlessly exploring, experimenting and bringing the soul back to winemaking.
