"so .... this summer, the children and i took our little cane basket into the garden.... we talked about their beautiful dadda, while we collected bunches of botanicals grown all around the wine studio.... these botanicals were gently submerged in a continuous ferment, kept alive throughout vintage by bleeding off portions destined to be shaped into our other wines
some of the botanicals infused were... sage....wild fennel....wormwood.... elderflower....lemon balm....bay leaf....river mint....thyme....lavender.....rosemary....lemon verbena....rose petals"
