THE WINE
We took on farming the Cassin Vineyard a few years ago - converting it to organic practices with the incredible team at Vitis Terra, and these efforts, combined with the great conditions of the 2021 vintage, really helped turn a page for the quality of this special site and the wine we make from it - so much so that it deserved to be commemorated in its own bottling.

We put together multiple fermentation lots from this vineyard during harvest, layering in the different clones and adjusting percentages of whole cluster, which has thus allowed us to select from a beautiful range of barrels to blend together for this special Auction Wine. The result represents everything we love about the 2021 vintage: a wine that is powerful, but with finesse and depth.

We named the wine "Renewal" after the 2021 album by bluegrass phenom Billy Strings. The songs featured on the album beautifully address topics like overcoming loss, the anxieties of the current world, and the need for more love and hope. A perfect-fitting soundtrack to the renewal we all felt this past year on earth, and a soundtrack that we hope people can connect with as much as we did.
