This is the rst wine from our little estate vineyard on the East Side of Templeton. The vines wrap around our house and we can watch their progress from our bedroom. Stephy does all the work in the vineyard.
GIORNATA FATTO A MANO wines are a true reflection of place and vintage without makeup or any tricks to hide behind. Winemaker Brian Trrizzi and Grape Grower Stephy Terrizzi made the choice early on that these wines would be devoid of intervention, without addition, made in clay amphora and simply put, “are what they are”. The bottles were all filled by gravity, corked individually by hand, without any filtration or fining. We are aware these wines are not for everyone, and they are not for every occasion, but we feel that all of them are intrinsically unique and true to vintage.
Orangotango is a wine that defies expectation. Technically an "orange" wine, it is a blend of several white varieties that were fermented on their skins. Unlike most orange wines, this lot was filtered prior to bottling, giving the consumer something that is decidedly more approachable than most in the genre tend to be.
