Easy drinking and complex, the 2020 Passeggiata is a medium-bodied red wine that offers tart red berries, along with some earthy notes, spice, vanilla, and creamy caramel with a finish that is laced with minerality and pepper spice that compliments the bright acidity of this wine.
Our 2020 Passeggiata is a mélange of aromas with juicy acidity. Soft structured but with a lot going on, very smooth, with tart fruit notes and a nice finish showing pepper and black tea notes. A perfect medium to light bodied summer red!

Passeggiata is made from our bleed wine. Once the fruit is picked, destemmed, and crushed, the berries, juice, pulp and seeds all go into a stainless steel fermentation tank. Once the tanks are filled, we run off or "bleed" a portion of the juice. The bleed portion can be anywhere from 15% to 40% of the total juice volume. This bleeding process allows for a greater skin to juice ratio in our primary wine, which helps to increase depth, richness and concentration. The bleed juice is put into a separate tank and is fermented cold and slowly, similar to how our whites are fermented. Once the main wine tank is drained, we put the bleed juice back into the tank for a second time so it can soak up all that the cap has to offer to create the foundation of our Passeggiata!
