ABOUT THIS WINE:

This year’s release of "Got Grapes" is 100% Cortese from the Lost Slough Vineyard. This is their first time working with this varietal and vineyard. It is not common to find Cortese growing outside of Italy. There is a bright salinity in the wine - which is a special characteristic from the vineyard site. Whole clusters were foot stomped and then pressed to stainless tank to naturally ferment and age for 5 months. This wine was left unfiltered and unfined.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

Chris Brockway came to call Berkeley home (for his cellar anyways) by way of Omaha, Nebraska, where he was born and raised, Seattle, and finally Los Angeles, with a couple short stops in between. After graduating from the University of Nebraska, he began working in restaurants around the city before decamping to the Pacific Northwest, where he ultimately became interested in wine. After a friend joked that he should learn how to actually make it, he packed his things and enrolled in winemaking courses at UC Davis. He finished his studies and quickly landed a job at JC Cellars, by all means a conventional winery. At the same time he began to frequent Terroir, San Francisco’s first natural wine bar, and began to think a lot about experimenting with the wines he liked to drink. And so, with a few small experiments, Broc Cellars was born.
