Description

"Camp Wines were created by the Hobo Wine Co. in 2013 to showcase the quality and value of Sonoma County wine. We are working with top growers and vineyard managers in very high quality and responsibly farmed, though lesser known, vineyards throughout Sonoma County to produce delicious, approachable, and affordable wines. Like Hobo, the Camp wines employee native yeasts and malolactic bacterias for the primary and secondary fermentations without the use of commercial fermentation aids or additives. The wines are aged in real oak barrels and/or stainless steel tanks vs. alternatives or flavoring agents. The 2012 Chardonnay is 100% from the Lloyd Vineyard in Alexander Valley off of Soda Rock Road. This year, the Chard was hand-picked in two lots that were about a week apart to add varying levels of ripeness and more variety of flavor. Both lots were whole cluster pressed and then fermented together in stainless steel. After a few months of time on the lees, the wine was transferred to neutral French barrels for two months before being racked and prepared for bottling." -Winery
