Tomorrow at Vine? We Get Truthy.
We welcome one of California's most pioneering winemakers, Louisa Sawyer-Lindquist, to the shop! One of the earliest champions of biodynamic viticulture, she's also the winemaking force behind both Verdad Wine Cellars and Lindquist Family Cellars (a partnership with her husband Bob, the founder and animating force behind Qupé).
Verdad (Spanish for "truth") is the project Louisa launched to highlight Spanish grape varietals. Having fallen in love with Spanish wine, she couldn't quite grock how no one was working with these grapes here... and true to her pioneering spirit, she decided to rectify that herself!
One of the first to plant and bottle Albariño (heck, when she released her first bottling almost 20 years ago, she couldn't put the name of the grape on the bottle - the government hadn't yet permitted the grape variety for an American wine!), and still one of the only winemakers in CA to make a Graciano, we are stoked to have Louisa in the house!
She'll pouring a Cal-Iberian quintet: her Garnacha rosé, her Albariño, and her Graciano, Tempranillo and Garnacha. Organically and biodynamically farmed, naturally fermented and not fussed with in the cellar, these are pure, expressive and balanced wines that convey the cool climate sites she sources from on the Central Coast.
