Suisan Valley Valdiguié 2019





Production Notes

40-year-old vines farmed organically (no certification) in Suisun Valley on Brentwood clay-loam soils. Two-thirds of the fruit was fermented natively, 50% whole-cluster in an open-top fermenter for approximately 16 days. The other one-third was destemmed and then sealed in a fully anaerobic fermentation environment (i.e. a giant, food grade plastic bag) for 16 days, and then pressed together with the rest and put to neutral barrel. Minimal sulfur added.

Suisan Valley Valdiguié - 2019
Like Beaujolais, this wine is joy in liquid form. Butterflies, sunbursts, blooming bouquets of California Poppies.

By day, Katie and Corinne work in some of Napa’s most vaunted wine cellars, producing award-winning wines that would make your father-in-law drool. By night they pour their energy and passion into Birdhorse — without question one of the most exciting new wineries in the country. We love Birdhorse — co-founded by the two winemakers along with partner Tyler Ernst — for its electrically delicious wines and fresh takes on overlooked varieties. But more importantly, we love Birdhorse for its mission to update an industry long overdue for change by amplifying underrepresented voices in the LGBTQ+ community and beyond.
