Whole cluster ferments, destemmed/decrushed, barrels, cold soaks, stainless steal, staves- these are the variables Rob Folin, winemaker at Folin Cellars, has controlled in his latest vintage of Viognier. What started out as three separate trials, will soon be selected for one fabulous wine. Bottling is estimated to occur the first week of May. Listen to Rob talk about his Viognier creation process:
Folin Cellars in Gold Hill currently produces around 2,000 cases annually. They focus on 100% estate grown, warm climate varietals such as Viognier, Tempranillo, and Syrah and elect to use Vino Seal closures on all their wines to ensure all of their wines are as Rob has intended them to be.
Folin Cellars' Tasting Rooms are now open for the season! Their Estate Tasting Room welcomes visitors Saturdays and Sundays 12-5 p.m. and weekdays by appointment. Their Carlton Tasting Room is Saturdays 1-6 p.m. and Sundays 12-5 p.m.
