Single Ferment Series

What is Single Ferment Series ?

When GWCo saw it’s Carignan growers being paid paltry sums for their other fruit: Pais & Cinsault, we began acquiring small bits from various farmers to experiment. We paid bonafide prices that allowed for the traditional field works of cultivating the soil properly to continue.

Commercial bottlings of “Single Ferments” began with serendipity when we simply could not resist not one but three small bits of Cinsault and then promptly ran out of tanks to ferment them in. With where to put all three, we simply stacked the second bit of newly harvested fruit on top of the first already fermenting—and then the third.

In one elongated we made a wine that we loved. So we continued and adopted the same technique with Pais!
