CABERNET SAUVIGNON | OAKVILLE | NAPA VALLEY
Oakville Ranch Vineyard is located in the Oakville AVA in the eastern hills of Napa Valley. Phil Coturri presides over the farming of our Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Sitting on a sublime plateau at elevations ranging from 800-1400 feet above sea level (250-425 m), these red soils are visually distinct, volcanic in origin and moderately well drained. Home to some of the most well respected wines in Napa Valley, the fruit is quietly powerful with both tannin and fruit complexity winemakers dream about. CCOF certified organic.
GRENACHE | ROSSI RANCH | SONOMA VALLEY
Our one hundred percent Grenache is sourced from Rossi Ranch in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Owned by Sandy Otellini and farmed by Phil Coturri, the fine clay loam soils are perfect for growing this wondrously aromatic red grape. Laced with wild strawberry but also nuanced with wooly thyme and wet stone. Burgundian in character and winemaking, fermentation occurs in open top tanks with just enough stems to perfect elegant tannins. The soft ruby color is deceptive, there is grip and amplitude to these wines that grabs our attention. CCOF certified organic.
GRENACHE | STEEL PLOW | SONOMA VALLEY
A charming valley floor site in Kenwood, Sonoma Valley, Steel Plow Vineyard is another expertly farmed planting by Phil Coturri and his team. Certified organic, the soils are composed of eroded igneous volcanic rock and clay from the Mayacamas Mountains. Planted solely to Rhone varieties, our rendition of Steel Plow is primarily Grenache with a small contribution of both Mourvèdre and Syrah Noir.
GRENACHE | SHAKE RIDGE RANCH | AMADOR
Located in the gently rolling Sierra foothills of California, farming at Shake Ridge Ranch is an entire family effort skillfully managed by Ann Kraemer. Rhone varietals are perfectly suited to the geologically rich soils and continental climate producing complex and expressive wines. Situated on the Sierra uplift at approximately 1500- 1700 feet (450 -520 m), we harvest Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Viognier from this area brimming with early California history and current swank.
SYRAH | SOBERANES VINEYARD | SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS
Our quest for a northern Rhone inspired wine was answered when we started working with Soberanes Vineyard in Santa Lucia Highlands. We are pleased to work with Mark Pisoni who carefully tends the vines in one of the coolest grape growing regions in California. Located at the base of the Santa Lucia Range south of California’s Monterey Bay, we love the Syrah for its structure, minerality, and unctuous fruit. These soils are described as tectonic uplifts primarily granite, limestone, sandstone and shale.
ALBARIÑO | RORICK HERITAGE VINEYARD | CALAVERAS
Gallica’s only white wine is sourced from Rorick Heritage Vineyard located just outside of no apostrophe Murphys, California. Located north of Yosemite National Park in the Sierra foothills at 2000 ft. (607 m), this region tempted early California pioneers with the promise of gold. These limestone rich soils produce a crisp and aromatic white wine that serves as a perfect companion in our otherwise red portfolio. Farmed by vintner Matthew Rorick, our dry white wine is a blend of Albariño with a hint of Muscat Blanc.
