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.

June 2014 Wine Club Selections

1-0630141533The selections for June 2014 Wine Club have been made and are ready for pickup! This quarter features one bottle each of three brand new releases.

2013 Viognier. A very special wine and release. Only one bottle per member. Radiant lemon-lime hue. Bright citrus nose, with lemongrass, pear skin, and elements of honey and lime pith on the palate. Viscous yet minerally with well-balanced acidity. All fruit from high-altitude (3,200 ft) vines on their own roots in deep, sandy, granitic soil. One week of whole cluster carbonic maceration.

2013 Clara Rosé. Strawberries and cream, with hints of rose petal and marmalade. A very dry rosé with a slight tannic grip, it is never cloying. 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre.

2012 Grenache. Is there a perfect red wine for Summer? We humbly submit this wine for consideration. Rich raspberry and cranberry, with black and white pepper aromas, along with bright acidity and fine but distinct tannins. This wine is refreshing and luscious to drink, with enough spice and backbone to keep you wanting more (and an alcohol level low enough you can actually have more).
