Making Amore Bianco

Amore Bianco
Our Amore Bianco is made from 100% Tocai Friulano -- an Italian grape variety we source from Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino, it is a beautiful reflection of place. It's made from organically farmed grapes, that are naturally fermented using only native yeasts, no sulfur is added and its left unfiltered. Pair it with warm weather produce under a pergola and joined by friends. 
In January we pumped the fermented juice off its skins and transferred the wine back in sandstone jars to age.

This press is fairly new at the winery.
After being pressed off the skins the fermented wine will go back into the sandstone jars to age.
We call these skins after pressing the birthday cake!
