    Winemaker Notes

    This is the partner of Naucratis, harvested from a few rows away in Lost Slough. The wine is a Gewurztraminer; dry, weighty, with the power to affront. We made only 22 gallons in 2007 and decided to put it into 500 ml bottles to stretch out the production-- from 7.5 cases to 10. We have kept this curious bottle size because the whole package (with photo of abandoned tractor on the front) is so perfect for the wine. It is serious because of its dry power, but is somehow the favorite wine of dance parties. 500 ml bottle

    Only 180 cases produced.

    We are small. Our hands, our feet, our minds are in the wine. We make wine from vineyards that are distinguished sometimes by being ignored. Our wines often do not resemble other wines, but we are not renegades. We are students. Our projects are not always experiments-- sometimes we know what we are doing-- but they are always acts of emulation, looking up at the work of others we admire.

    Thus, "scholium," from the Greek <>, which shares the same root as "school, scholarship." It signifies a modest project, not a preeminent one, undertaken for the sake of learning, understanding–hence a commentary, an essay, a study. But no matter how much we learn, no matter how interesting our studies, if the wines do not bring pleasure, they are worthless. And if they do not circulate, our work is empty. So we strive harder every year to disseminate the wine-- the wines have no business staying in the same place, consumed by only a few.
