WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Lagrein is a very dark grape, so the skins bleed off instantly, hence the darker hue. It’s pressed into stainless steel and aged for 9 months. The numerous bottles of Nusserhoff’s Lagrein Rose that we have enjoyed over the years from Alto Adige inspire this wine. What is special about this wine is the vineyard. Lone Pine Vineyard is farmed by Charlie Cosens, where he grows Lagrein, Refosco and Chardonnay. The vineyard is located in El Dorado County, just outside of Placerville. It is at 1700 ft elevation and consists of volcanic rock, shale and fine grained granite. One of the reasons we started working with the vineyard is because Charlie began farming without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. Fun fact - there is a large lonely pine tree at the center of the vineyard and our label artist had this pine cone drawing before we even told her about the lonely pine tree in the vineyard. How serendipitous!

At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.

There must be a person 21 or older present at the time of delivery.
