Other Information: 80% Cabernet, 20% Petite Sirah, grown on an undulating benchland, between upper mountains and flat valley floor. Shale or fractured rock with a crust of loamy soil. These two varietals were picked together on the same day and stomped with 20% stem add-backs and allowed to macerate for two weeks, then pressed to neutral barrels and aged sur lie for 2 years.
Organic, Biodynamic, Dry Farmed, Hand Picked, Foot Stomped, and All Natural, Old World Winery is true to its name. Darek Trowbridge’s passion is inviting nature into his wine making using 120 year old field blends, rare varietals and native yeasts.
