Gina settled on the coast of San Luis Obispo, farming and making wine from the Chene Vineyard, which she has converted to biodynamics. The focus is on organic and biodynamic farming, expressing the purity of the land, and making wine without additives or manipulation. Gina picks on the natural acidity of the grapes and is looking at flavour development. The ultimate goal is to make fun, fresh, wines built on the mantra, 'know your farmer'. Gina says: It wasn’t until I started farming that I felt like I truly connected to the real joy of making wine - spending every single day in the vineyard, tending to the vines, the soil, the weeds, the pests, experiencing the rain and sunshine and wind and heat - that I felt I truly understood how a wine can speak of place.
A great style of Sauvignon blanc, that has green melon and stoney minerality with nice texture and refreshing acidity.
