2020 rosé in a 12 oz can!
These grapes were raised side-by-side in West Texas where the climate is well suited to develop the beautiful character of these hardy varieties. Paying homage to the grower and the vintage, we chose to manipulate nothing. Hand harvested, fermented on the skins, native yeast. No sulphur or acid added. This low intervention approach lets you taste the story written by the vintage, not the vintner. 11.5% ABV
55% Albariño (skin fermented), 27% Picpoul (barrel fermented), 18% Garnacha (carbonic)
Texas High Plains - One Elm Vineyard (cheers Brad!)

Pét-Nat, but make it Réd.
We've been crushing on Lambrusco for long enough, so we thought we'd make our version of it. Petit Verdot provides a great skeleton to build off of. It's super inky and weighty and rich. Merlot lends more dense fruit and a perception of sweetness, like many lambruscos carry. We blended a small amount of Picpoul in for acidity.
Ask Coop how he feels about it the next time you're in!
