You know it is something special when California wine legend / wearer of many hats, Wolfgang Weber and rockstar winemaker, Chad Hinds of Methode Sauvage Iruai, team up to make classic California varieties like Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. These are fresh and delicious wines. The fruit is all sourced from organic vineyards and the winemaking is decidedly low-intervention, yielding in wines that are alive.
