Fire Fuego is so hot right now. Farmed with integrity in Mendocino by Jack Sporer (winemaker) and his vineyard partners Ross Canard at Nelson Family Vineyards in Ukiah, CA. Fresh Wine Co. only uses grapes from organic farms practicing regenerative agriculture and growing extremely clean grapes.
This wine is rad. Zippy and bright with a wonderful skin contact texture and plenty of zip. You'd never know this wine had no added SO2... it is CLEAN!
Regenerative grape farming is of paramount importance to the Fresh Wine Company. We work with grape farmers dedicated to changing the agricultural paradigm in Sonoma Valley, hoping to heal the earth and the community. These farmers have transitioned several properties from conventional strip spraying to regenerative and sustainable practices. Working without synthetic pesticides, conserving groundwater, and improving soil tilth to sequester carbon and protect waterways are practices central to the Fresh Wine Company's mission.
FRES.CO wine is made with minimal additives and maximum transparency. The aim is to make fresh tasting wine, support our community, and drawdown carbon emissions. To accomplish this we work with neighbors, minimize waste, and emphasize sustainable agriculture. In the cellar, we make wine without commercial inputs. Generally we add only a small dose of SO2 (generally 30 ppm, solely at bottling). We ferment with native yeast and neutral barrels, and use both scientific and ancient techniques to eliminate additions. FRES.CO's goal is to produce natural wines that are delicious and true to site while using progressive business practices to incentivize positive change.
