Tasting Notes

Back by popular demand, this exciting new vintage of one of our most loved wines is back on the shelves! Bright, balanced and not to be missed, this unique and fruity blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is breaking new ground. 


Food Pairings

Being a lighter red, Groundbreaker works well with pasta, or burgers and fries. Pair with with a gourmet style burger topped with caramelized onions, Brie cheese, and smoked maple bacon. 


Winemaker's Notes

For Groundbreaker, our goal was to create a blend that would be non conventional, easy drinking, and yet interestingly seductive. Composed of 45% Gamay, 45% Pinot Noir, and 10% Chardonnay, each of these varieties were aged separately for about 6 months in oak on the lees. They were then blended, and left on fine lees in tank for an additional 2 months, after which the wine was filtered and bottled where it aged yet another 2 months before release.
