Berthoud Wines are produced and estate bottled in the barn depicted on the label from vines that are meticulously managed to yield less than two tons of small, concentrated grapes per acre. The grapes are punched down by hand several times each day in traditional open-top redwood vats during fermentation to maximize color and flavor extraction in the gentlest manner possible. A 19th century one-ton basket press delivers only the highest quality wine directly to a combination of premier French oak barrels. After approximately twenty-two months of aging, the wine is bottled without any fining or filtration. The result is handcrafted wine that exudes the personality of the Berthoud family, their property and the artisanal style in which it was made.
