These grapes were harvested on the night of August 28, 2022. They were brought directly to the winery and gently pressed before sunrise. The cool juice was moved to a stainless steel tank where native fermentation began three days later. The wine was cold crashed and racked before bottling was done by hand. No sulfur or fining agents were added at any stage during the production. It was aged in bottle for 4 months before being released without disgorgement.
From the Winemaker : Tim Fulnecky's first foray into the wine industry was as a cellar hand in 2015. It quickly became apparent that he'd stumbled into a lifelong career. In 2016 at the urging of his mentor, he started producing his own wines. Focusing only on the grape Gamay Noir, he strives to make world-class wines from grapes sourced exclusively from California's Central Coast. While many of the wines are inspired by the great wines of Beaujolais, some are disloyal to the grape they are made from. Under the new moniker Mr. Brightside, Tim will continue to grow and source grapes from new sites.
