Floral and warm nose with a delicate and welcoming palate. Think passing a honeysuckle bush on a long springtime walk. This wine likes good views at golden hour at your favorite tranquil spot. This wine is great now, great the next day, and will age for many, many years. These vines were planted in 1973, part of the second planting at Ibarra-Young Vineyard. As is everything else on the vineyard, they are also own rooted, no till, rotationally grazed, and interplanted with native plants to the Santa Ynez watershed. This block sits across a fairly sandy part of an alluvial bench that runs through the vineyard. It has extremely low vigor so its clusters are constantly dappled with the California sunshine. Imagine this while you’re tasting! We’ve been working hard on rebuilding soil health in this section especially and are just now beginning to see the impacts of our rotational grazing and no-till practices. This wine was picked around 20.5B just as the acids were starting to deplete. In the cellar, 20% of these grapes were destemmed and fermented in a small stainless steel tank for 10 days on skins, and the other portion was pressed directly and fermented in neutral french oak barrels until dry. The fermentation is always with native yeast and native bacteria. After 10 days, the skin contact portion of this wine was pressed in the basket press before joining the rest of the marsanne in neutral french oak. This wine went fully through malolactic fermentation and spent 18 months on elevage without sulfur. The skin contact portion and the direct press portion of this wine were combined into one about 5 months before bottling. The 2022 Marsanne was bottled unfined and unfiltered on March 18th, 2024. - 12.0% ABV - 92 cases produced - Regenerative organic grapes managed holistically, minimal effective sulfites

We lease and farm the Ibarra-Young Vineyard in Los Olivos District A.V.A.

This vineyard was planted by Charlotte Young in 1971 and is still owned by her three daughters. Charlotte's right-hand man, Miguel Ibarra, Helped her plant the vineyard in 1971 and continued to work on the vineyard for more than 40 years. Today, we celebrate this duo by designating these 10 acres as the Ibarra-Young Vineyard.

Ibarra-Young Vineyard was one of the first vineyards planted in the Santa Ynez Valley and has so much soul you can feel it. The first 3 acres were planted in 1971 and 3 more acres were planted in 1973. In the late 90's and early 2000's Bob Lindquist completed Ibarra-Young's planted acreage with the "young" vines in the rockier section of the vineyard.

The vineyard is planted to Syrah and Mourvèdre planted in 1971, Marsanne planted in 1973, as well as suitcase clone Tempranillo and Graciano planted in the late 90's. Everything on the property is own-rooted and has been farmed organically since 1993. We began leasing and farming this special place at the beginning of 2020 and employ regenerative organic and biodynamic practices.

Our goal is to rebuild an ecosystem of native species that live alongside our vine rows, regenerate soil health, and grow the highest quality grapes this site can give. We believe the best wine grapes are grown with minimal inputs and conscious vineyard management. We reject a systematic schedule for viticulture and farming in general. We believe that by working in conjunction with nature we can increase biodiversity and soil health, minimize unnecessary sprays, minimize tractor passes and compaction, decrease water use, and reduce our carbon footprint.

We look forward to taking you along on this journey of unconventional viticulture with us. We hope to convince you that with a lot of passion and hard work, world-class wines are made with minimal intervention in a vineyard that grows alongside a healthy living ecosystem.
