SCRIBE x LA LUZ // FIRE RELIEF FUND
Proceeds from the sales of SCRIBE 2017 NOUVEAU of Pinot Noir, our celebratory harvest wine, will be donated to La Luz Center, a non-profit here in Sonoma. La Luz is focused on health, education and financial security for immigrants in our community, and have established a fire relief fund for those affected by this disaster.
Taking inspiration from the fresh and lively Nouveau wines of Beaujolais, France, our first experimental vintage was bottled in 2014, substituting the traditional Burgundian Gamay with our Pinot Noir grapes. Beaujolais Nouveau is traditionally released the third Thursday of November, and has become synonymous with Thanksgiving, holiday festivities and celebratory times.
On August 31st, 2017, our Pinot Noir was hand harvested from the Pathi Vineyard. The fruit went through an 6 day, 100% whole cluster carbonic maceration (the fermentation of juice within the individual berries of whole grape clusters, opposed to the juice of pressed fruit) in stainless steel. The juice was then pressed off the skins, and fermentation was completed in tank and will be bottled on October 26, 2017, without filtration or fining.
