In honor of the real work.

My first harvest job was picking grapes and running trucks full of grape bins to wineries throughout Oregon.  It was a crash course in "the wine life".  Alberto was the first guy to show me how to identify grapes on the vine, the first guy to show me how to pick grapes, the first guy to show me how to strap down bins, and how to not ride the brakes. This wine is named after him.  This is an aromatic co-fermentation of Tempranillo, Syrah, Grenache, Alvarinho, and Viognier, all from the northern edge of the Willamette Valley.  This wine was native fermented in thrice used French oak for thirteen months. It is unfiltered and unfined (vegan) and has no added sulfur.

*This is not a BLEND…this is a CO-FERMENTATION. BIG difference.
