2022 Lovett Vineyard ‘Unsung Hero’ Skin-Fermented White Blend
Grapes: Picpoul Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Vermentino
Vineyard: Located on a steep hill right on Clear Lake in Lake County, Lovett Vineyard is planted to the vibrant Rhône varieties Picpoul Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Vermentino, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre. These twenty year old vines come with a picturesque view of the ancient lake (2.5 million years old!) and the volcanic Mount Konocti. Although it's been dormant for about 10,000 years, the volcano continues to have an effect on the beautiful landscape and amazing soils found within the vineyard itself. We've had our eye on this site for a while, and we're grateful to Humberto Nunez and his farming team for taking on the stewardship of this site as we begin to lease it for our 2022 vintage.
