Comes from northwest and southeast facing vines planted by Canopus in 2010. The first grapes were harvested by hand, direct pressed and left to ferment. The last ¼ or so of the harvested grapes were left whole cluster and put into mesh bags that were deposited into the fermented juice and left to infuse the wine for 6 months in concrete. The wine was bottled without fining, filtration and 30 ppm’s of SO2 total.
Gabriel Dvoskin worked as a journalist for 15 years, living and traveling throughout Asia and Europe. A musician and a writer, he lived in Paris and worked as a war correspondent in the 1990s. At the same time, Gabriel discovered a passion for wine and viticulture, particularly the wines of Burgundy, Barolo, and the Mosel. This led to time as a harvest assistant and vineyard hand at esteemed wineries in the Rhône and in Burgundy. Eventually he decided to change careers and to devote himself to wine and winemaking full-time.
