Today Stolpman Vineyards stands proud with 13 acres of tightly spaced, head-pruned, revolutionary vineyard blocks. These blocks, entirely farmed by hand, singularly represent Peter and Jessica Stolpman’s fanatical pursuit of unprecedented quality. The 2018 Own-Rooted Field-Blend is the first taste of the revolution: Perhaps the purist reflection of the vineyard: completely hands off, uncrushed grapes fermented whole, without any additives or sulfur. The goal here is to make a wine that reflects only their terroir and the mix of grapes they've planted here. Un-grafted Vinifera balance themselves, and we try to capture their most delicate nuance by avoiding extraction or other winemaking influences.

Vibrant ruby in color, it features warm blackberries, crushed blueberries, blackcurrant, black cherries and dark chocolate with violet and lilac perfume and peppery hints.
