FROM ASHANTA WINES

THE WINE: The grapes were hand harvested by crew, Chenoa and Will in August of 2022. The site has 20 different varietals planted, and the day of the pick we were able to decide the co-ferment/field blend we wanted to make. 50% Viognier, 35% Marsanne, 10% Pinot Gris, 5% Sauvignon Blanc. The Viognier was direct pressed, while the Marsanne, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc were destemmed and fermented on the skins for 10 days, then pressed out and blended with the Viognier. Aged in french neutral Oak, racked twice and aged in barrel for 9 months.

No additions or subtractions. Unfined, unfiltered, zero SO2.

THE PRODUCER:  Ashanta Wines abides by zero:zero, traditional winemaking practices and makes a full range of bespoke wines. From experimental multi-fruit co-ferments, Pet-Nats, skin contact whites, field blends and elegant California Reds. Our wines are terroir driven expressions of Pachamama and her seasons.

Unfined. Unfiltered. Wild yeast fermentations. Zero S02.

We source our fruit from family-operated vineyards and work with growers who farm with organic and/or biodynamic practices. We hand pick some of our growers’ vineyards and sometimes, we forage for wild fruit in both the wilderness and urban spaces.

Ashanta Wines is currently located in Sebastopol, CA and Los Angeles, as they work with vineyards along the spine of California’s expansive landscape.
