Breaking Bread "Field Blend" Red, 2019, 750ml



This Field Blend Cuvée was made as a tribute to the heritage of our home in Dry Creek Valley. One hundred years ago in Sonoma County wines were made with little to no intervention or technology. Our natural winemaking approach is one that emulates the style of wines made by these early vintners. The defining characteristic is whole-cluster fermentation (carbonic maceration). We use all native yeast for spontaneous fermentation, all native bacteria for malolactic fermentation, and add no Sulphur throughout fermentation. Also, in line with the tradition of incorporating white varietals, we chose to co-ferment with Muscat Blanc, for a distinct and unmistakable flavor and aromatics.

Roughly 75% Zinfandel and 25% other varietals. Those other varietals were always made up of a mixture of Petite Sirah, Carignan and Alicante Bouschet, with random white varietals interplanted as well.

This is the perfect light dinner wine - pair it with a weeknight pasta or pizza.
