The Estate

In 1964 Tony Truchard received orders to report to Korea for a two year tour; however, a very pregnant Jo Ann Truchard, his wife, changed all of that by slipping on a grape in the grocery store in San Antonio and breaking her knee. Four days later, sporting a full leg cast, Jo Ann delivered their fourth baby and their lives changed. Instead of Korea, the Army decided to send Tony to Northern California to serve as the medical commander for a base near the Nevada border.

Wine Making

All of the fruit was picked cold and whole cluster pressed. The juice was clarified and slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine remained in tank on the lees (sur lie) for an additional 3 months. This wine was bottled in February 2021.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with shellfish, vegetarian dishes, and goat cheese.
