Two Shepherds

Fanucchi Vineyard skin fermented Trousseau Gris 2018

Another gem from William & Karen. This Trousseau Gris has the most appetizing pale salmon / coral color and an exotic profile to match: mandarin oranges, lychees and more happening here. Excellent with homemade spicy pork pad Thai. — 18 days ago

Domaine de la Tournelle

Terre de Gryphées Arbois Chardonnay

A beautiful wine - some heft in the body (presumably from a bit of skin contact and lees aging?) with fantastic acidity and minerality. Expressive apples and citrus on the nose with some almonds as well. Just great. — a month ago

Skin Fermented Field Blend Red Blend 2019

Peachy, not sweet - amazing for a 45 day contact — 22 days ago

Ronco del Cerò Collio Sauvignon

Grapefruit, honey, minerals - really gorgeous Sauvignon blanc from my favorite italian wine region. Enough skin contact to make it interesting, not enough to make it ~trendy~ — 3 days ago

Still thinking about it the next day!


Pinot Grigio 2018

Super accessible. Unlike most Pinot Grigio, this has a textured backbone of clay, stone, and salinity. The acidity is well balanced. Love how unassuming, and unpretentious this skin contact wine is at $13. — 9 days ago


Montefalco Sagrantino 2016

A deep inhale of cedar and tabac.

A touch of saline with great fruits here, mulberry, dark raspberry, alpine strawberry. Some heft to the body, and a completely beautiful integration of the tannins from the grape skin contact, the oak tannins, the persimmon acidity. Hints of coffee linger.
This is a philosophical wine, one to really think about. Love these.
