Vineyard - Regan Vineyards and Veranda Vineyard

Appellation - Corralitos, Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, CA

Alcohol - 14.8%

Case Production - 100

Fermentation/Winemaking - Crush was followed by six days of cold soak, at 40 degrees.  We utilized a native fermentation (no yeast added, relying only on the native yeasts on the skins of the grapes and resident in the winery). Maceration lasted 12 days. We did a light pressing with a hand-operated basket press. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 17 months, and released at 4 years.  It is unfiltered.

Kosher Winemaking

  • Our wine is supervised kosher, parve, and kosher for Passover by Rabbi David Booth at (conservative) Congregation Kol Emeth in Palo Alto and carries his hechsker on the label.  It is not mevushal (ritually boiled).
  • Our wines don’t carry a nationally recognized certification, and so some observant Jews may require that their wines carry an OU or similar certification.
