This is the second time Penville has created a co-fermentation. The Grenache came from the tiny Via Caprice Vineyard in the Los Olivos District A.V.A in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, and the Mencaa was grown just down the road from the winery at Riverbench Vineyard in Santa Maria. Both vineyards are farmed organically. The Mencaa was destemmed while the Grenache was left whole cluster. Penville then layered the fruit into their 476gl concrete egg for fermentation using only native yeast. The wine was refined in one 500L puncheon then bottled unfiltered and unfined.
