"Aaron & Cara Mockrish ended up in North Yuba County with the intention of establishing a farm, but a bottle of Clos Saron Black Pearl 2008 sent them off on an unexpected path to winemaking. Having tasted the wine, they found that the man who made it lived near to their farm, and so they made it their mission to meet him. It was there, in Oregon House, California, that they found Gideon Beinstock, his tiny home vineyard, and their future. 


They managed to make a connection with Renaissance Winery (where Gideon had made his earliest, incredible wines, as well as many of the first vintages of Clos Saron), which was no longer producing their own wine, and leased their oldest producing vines." - Bowler Wine


A densely mineral driven wine, reminiscent of wines from the Alps. Crisp, crunchy minerality, light tropical notes and subtle florals. An amazing wine for seafood or a hot day. Please note there are 15 ppm SO2 added at bottling.
