Notes from the winemaker:

"Vincent Wine Company is a Willamette Valley winery making Oregon Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Gamay and even red wine from Pinot Gris. Owner/winemaker Vincent Fritzsche launched the winery in 2009 after years of apprenticing in wineries in Oregon and California. We’re all about low-input wine making, working with several sustainably-farmed vineyards around the Willamette Valley to produce small amounts of handmade wine without a lot of fuss."

Winemaking
Pressed whole cluster, settled as juice for two days and racked into older French oak barrels. Fermentation happens naturally, usually taking many months. The slow primary and secondary (malolactic) fermentations keep the liquid fairly saturated with CO2, which preserves freshness. There is no batonnage, or stirring of the lees. The barrels are simply kept topped and otherwise not touched for about eighteen month.
