The 2017 Red Table Blend is based on Merlot, and contains several of our other estate grown varietals such as Carignan, Mourvèdre, and Graciano. This berry forward blend is easily approached and pairs nicely with a variety of dishes and flavors due to its diversity. We recommend keeping one on your table at all times!
The Kirchhoff family lives and farms south of Clarksburg, CA, on the Sacramento River Delta. The fertile soils and warm days of the Clarksburg Appellation allow for strong vine growth, with the Delta breeze allowing the vines to cool down and rest at night. The result is nothing short of excellence.
Growing grapes is more than an occupation in our family. It is a passion which drives us day in and day out to produce the highest quality achievable. When it comes to the grape growing process, the approach is “hands on”. The estate vineyards are hand pruned, picked, and tended. Dry farming techniques are utilized to evoke the most flavorful expression that the land has to offer, and, by following organic and sustainable practices, the land is preserved for future generations to come.
When it comes to winemaking, the approach is “hands off”, which means they try to do as little as possible to manipulate the wine. There are no added sugars, acids, or tannins to the wine, and using spontaneous fermentation means no yeasts are added either. What we get in the end is a pure, natural product that we are proud to put our name upon.
