Farmhouse was born out of the desire to not only create a clean, herbicide and chemical free wine, but also to teach future generations about what it means to farm with nature, not against it.
Farmhouse takes its name from the school house located at Green String Farm in Petaluma, California. It serves as the library and study room for conscientious students from around the globe seeking to learn the Green String method of sustainable farming.
This method of “beyond sustainable” farming, was developed by Fred Cline and Bobby Cannard, two kindred spirits who believe that study and observation of nature can lead to balanced and better farming practices.
Winemaker Charlie Tsegeletos has been making wine in Sonoma for three decades. He allows grapes to tell their story; he doesn’t over-oak or manipulate the wines. Instead, Charlie uses blending to highlight and showcase the best that Mother Nature offers from each vintage.
Enjoy this medium-bodied luscious red wine with a variety of flavorful foods. It’s smooth with nicely balanced acidity, plum, chocolate and berry notes, and a smooth, rich finish. A blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Carignane, Mourvèdre, Grenache. 40% new French oak.
When selecting grapes for this wine, the winemaker was particularly conscious of the intensity of the fruit, the acid balance, and the characteristics each varietal offered to the blend as a whole. The final wine delivers bright, crisp flavors of tropical fruit and lime with a fresh, clean finish. A blend of Pinot Gris, Muscat Canelli, Palomino, Chardonnay and Viognier.
