2016 Ruth Lewandowski Feints Cuvee Zero,750ml

Availability: In stock (4)

Using grapes grown in Mendocino County, the winemaker Even Lewandowski actually begins fermentation in California then drives the wine back to Utah in a refrigerated U-Haul where he finishes making his natural wines. Feints is a take on a Piedmontese blend, all varieties common to the that northern region of Italy, but with the white grape Arnies begin nearly half of the blend, with the rest being the red varieties of Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo. Sourced from Fox Hill Vineyard, made without additives or filtration and only minimal use of sulfur.

From the mouth of the producer:

"Natural wine is the true expression of the land by way of a grapevine.  I'm not interested in debating exactly WHAT natural wine is.  People get all up tight about numbers and definitions in the wine world.  It tends to be easier explaining exactly what natural wine is not.

 It is not industrially farmed with the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides and fungicides and fertilizers.  It isn't an industrially produced beverage product through employing unnecessary amounts of sulphur, without cultured 'designer' yeast and/or bacteria strains, and the myriad of other techno cellar wizardry products we have at our fingertips these days."
