About Two Shepherds

California, United States
While our total production is small (~1,500 cases), our offerings are vast. Nicknamed 'insane master of small lots', William crafts about 15 different wines each vintage. All our wines are fermented with native yeast, aged on the lees in neutral barrels, and are minimally racked. We focus on uncommon varietals, often from the only few acres in California.

  • Other Information:This small lot of ancient vine Cinsault, from the famed Bechthold Vineyard is believed to be the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. Dry farmed and head trained in sandy soils, these old vines provide low yield, and a more complex expression of Cinsault. The grapes were whole cluster fermented with native yeast, then aged in old French oak barrels for 9 months.
