Velvety smooth, light and versatile. Allow to open up for one hour, decant or aerate. This field blend was hand-harvested from the vines of the Heins Block of our estate vineyard; The cobbly, volcanic soil of this block is is named for our great great aunt and uncle Effia and Ralph Heins. In the lows of the depression they raised over 10,000 turkeys at Beltane to lay fertile eggs which were shipped to families to hatch their own flock......a forgotten industry but one that can surely be appreciated by today's renewed interest in homesteading. As their egg layers were not for sale, the sign "No Turkeys Sold Retail" hung at the ranch from 1936 on and is now displayed in our kitchen. At once rustic and refined, and bottled in lighter eco-friendly packaging, this wine seems to fit the pioneering, farming spirit of the Heins. The 2020 vintage is a bright and light harvest from carignan, zinfandel, alicante bouschet and petite sirah. - Winery
