Winemaker's Notes:

Petite Syrah is called "Pets" by veteran grape growers like Ken Wilson. So we dedicate this wine to his pet -- Tanker. Dark colored, long legged and bold, we feel this wine has the potential of becoming your best friend.

The winery donates a portion of their profits from this wine to local animal shelters.

About Vinum Cellars:

Vinum Cellars is a collaboration of winemakers Richard Bruno and Chris Condos, who first became friends while they were students at UC Davis. They share a long standing passion for Chenin Blanc and fondness for the more obscure grape varieties. After graduation, Chris went to work for Pine Ridge as Enologist, and Richard went to Bonny Doon as their distiller. Shortly after, their friendship was solidified over Chenin Blanc with the creation of their first wine "Pointe Blanc". Currently the Vinum Cellars team is working with over 10 grape varieties from Placer County Cabernet Franc to San Benito County Viognier. In addition to the Vinum Cellars partnership, they are employed as winemakers: Chris with Kathryn Kennedy Winery and Richard as a Napa winemaking consultant.
