Grenache Blanc, 2017

Produced by Two Shepherds

The Grenache Blanc always undergoes 3+ years of bottling aging, until its complex aromatics, salinity and minerality come fully together like a symphony. Fresh, vibrant, with lots of salinity and minerality.

A Place In History

We are honored to offer you this special wine, in tribute to Saralee Kunde, who left us in 2014. Saralee was an unparalleled leader and heroine in Sonoma County agriculture, and a personal inspiration. Catie's Corner is named for her daughter. This vineyard was the first planting in the Russian River, made possible by Saralee's commitment to varietal diversity.
