2018 'Wiley' Carbonic Carignan Image

Inspired by our kitten, Wiley, a carbonic soul. A true carbonic carignan, sealed in tank for 2.5 weeks, then pressed back to stainless to finish fermenting and aged 4 months. Intense fresh berry aromatics leap out of the glass, both complex & fun flavors, that belie its youthfulness. Wiley has grown from a kitten to king of the farm, and like his personality, this vintage is slightly more serious, though still playful.    

Last year's 35 case experimental lot was a smash hit, so this year we jumped up to 125 cases.

12.2 % alc. Serve slightly chilled.

2018 Pinot Gris ramato Image

Dolce, our affable miniature Sicilian donkey inspired this wine. Last year's experimental 50 case lot disappeared quickly, so we took the plunge and increased production to 225 cases.

Destemmed and left on the skins to start a native yeast fermentation, then after 5 days pressed to finish fermentation and aged in neutral French barrels. The 5 days of skin contact impart a copper hue, reminiscent of Italian Ramato. The taste is uniquely its own, landing somewhere between an orange wine and a rosé.

Fun and fresh, with lingering savory notes. We have been previewing this wine for a month and its been a huge hit again, ready to drink immediately.  A wine as unique as our Dolce. Hee Haw!

2018 Rosé of Carignan Image

With everyone jumping on the bandwagon, it may seem that a rosé is a rosé is a rosé. We craft a true expression of rosé, rather than a financial afterthought. Picked early expressly for rosé at 20 Brix to ensure its lively nature, this Rosé offers a vibrant expression of Carignan. 

This 3 barrel, 75 case lot of rosé comes from a 45 year old, head trained, dry farmed, organically certified vineyard in Hopland, Mendocino.  We are very excited to be able to lease half of this vineyard, working closely with the 2nd generation grower. Fermented with native yeast, aged in 50% stainless steel, 50% neutral barrel. A fresh, vibrant wine that can be enjoyed all year long.

Please note (Feb 28th) the rose is still showing a bit of bottleshock, which should pass in a few weeks. For best enjoyment, we recommend giving it until Mid March (the 'official' release date) to open.

2013 Pastoral Rouge Image

Pastoral Rouge is our flagship red Rhône blend, uniquely crafted each year. The grapes of this blend come from a cool microclimate within the Russian River Valley, producing a wine of balance and finesse. Made in an Old World style with minimal intervention, fermented with native yeast, and aged in neutral barrels, allowing the grape to express its sense of place and vintage. The wine is bright and juicy, with notes of red fruits, earth and spice. 50% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre

You may notice we are releasing the 2013 AFTER the 2014, which runs counter to how most CA wineries do their thing.  We like to release wines when we enjoy them; some vintages take a bit longer to show themselves.

2015 Pastoral Blanc Image

Our latest release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (50%) blended with 30% Marsanne, 15% Viognier,  and 5% Grenache Blanc.

The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, the Grenache Blanc from Catie's Corneer in Russian River Valley. The Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc are the only plantings in the Russian River AVA.

 This year's complex blend is only 12.5% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and vibrant, yet aromatic and complex.

Enjoy during dungeness crab season on the west coast, and also pairs beautifully with lobster, scallops and similar fare.

2017 Cinsault Image

NEW!

This special 125 case lot (our largest release ever)) from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, is believed to be the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally best as a blending grape.

The 2017 is the lightest, prettiest release ever, picked earlier, weighing in at 11.8% alc - a perfect candidate for the hot "crushable" red emerging category - wines that you drink with a slight chill, and go down wayyyyy to easy.

Always 100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 8 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called “pure, deep, ... super delicious.” 

This will is available to the general public for a very brief time, then will be Flock Club only.

2015 Pinot Meunier Image

Released at last - our first red non Rhone!

Debuting a new label in our farm house series, our goats join the wine family.

From one of the oldest plantings of Pinot Meunier in the Russian River.

This variety is rarely found as a still wine, and often abused when it is. Its a delicate wine that doesn't respond well to heavy oak, thus perfectly suited for our light hand.

Light and silky in texture, drinks well with a slight chill. 12.3% alc.

2014 Centime Image

Centime, French for Penny, is Two Shepherds small annual production of skin fermented Rhone white wines, known as "orange" wine, because of the color the skin contact gives.

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized. If you have had William's unique style of red wines, you may appreciate Centime, a gentler, more approachable orange wine.

The 2014 release is 100% Grenache Blanc from the Russian River Valley.

This wine was crushed and fermented on the skins for 12 days until dry, exactly like a red wine, then very lightly pressed by hand to a neutral barrel, where it aged for 10 months.

Nice structure, minimal tannins for an "orange" wine with aromas and flavors of citrus peel and spice. Recommended serve with food.

2 barrels - 50 cases crafted.
