Vinavanti Urban Winery and Tasting Room

We make wine with absolute minimal intervention.
Wine representative of the grape, the land, and the vintage.

Locally-sourced fruit is hand-sorted at harvest, and then spontaneously fermented without the use of commercial yeast or bacteria. No acids, tannins, enzymes, clay, or other common altering ingredients are used.

Our wines are unfiltered, unoaked, never sulfited, and naturally beautiful.

March 2014 Wine Club Selections


The selections for March 2014 Wine Club have been made and are ready for pickup!

This quarter features two bottles of our 2012 Grenache/Mourvèdre blend, “The GM”. The bright red fruit and lively acidity of the Grenache marry with the dark and earthy aromas of the Mourvèdre to create a compelling and delicious blend. Black currants, cherries, charred wood, and stone. This is a Wine Club priority release not yet for general sale.

We’re also including one bottle of the 2011 Mourvèdre, which is now Wine Club only for a short time before it goes to the Library. Rich with earthy tobacco and leather aromas, followed by plum, black currants, and cherry on the finish. This wine crosses Old and New World perfectly. Not letting it touch oak has allowed the true varietal aromas to unfold.

Last Chance for L’Heritier Sparkling


Last chance for our 2013 Viognier Sparkling #petnat, this Thu+Fri 3-7pm & Sat 11-6pm (February 13th-15th) in the tasting room. Not quite like this, but still unlike anything you’ve ever tried!

Lab Results We Love

2011etslabsWe don’t add sulfites to our Black Label wines as part of our minimalist winemaking, but to get rid of that pesky “Contains Sulfites” warning on the wine label, we need to have a federally-approved lab test our wine (some sulfites occur naturally). We’ve got the results back on our 2011 reds, and they all contain less sulfites than the lab can even detect. Read the rest of this entry »
