Vinification method: Evan Lewandowski believes deeply in the cycle of life (going so far as to name his winery after the book of Ruth and its compelling depiction of the natural cycle of death and redemption), organic farming, and spontaneous fermentation. While the grapes are grown in Mendocino Country, California, the winemaking process occurs in Utah. Ultimately, the goal is to plant and grow 100% of the grapes in Utah.

Evan Lewandowski loves Grüner for the diversity in taste it can produce. "Stock Pot" leans fully into its savory notes, trying to elicit the smells and tastes of your Grandma's crock pot. The grapes are hand-harvested from the Rancho Coda Vineyard in the Russian River Valley and undergo whole cluster maceration for about 10 days. Fermentation was spontaneous with no temperature control, and the wine undergoes native malolactic conversion. It's then aged for 5 months on the lees. Unfined, unfiltered, and no added S02.

Tasting notes: light to medium-bodied, green apple, celery, pea shoots, white pepper

Pairings: pork loin filets in mushroom sauce with white asparagus

Mix and match 3, 6 or 12 bottles!
