The Full Story
Here is every vintage of Hossfeld to date.

Our winemaking goal is to allow the power and the beauty of the Hossfeld site to continue through to the wine.  We strive for full extraction from the grapes and along with the vineyard's natural retention of acidity, we are able to achieve ripeness without extended hangtime.  With a limitation of sulfur and an intention towards aging, our wines are composed of mountain tannin, robust fruit and a meditative finish.  We are a certified organic vineyard and the only ingredient in our estate wines is organic grapes.

 

Our wines are produced in small quantities and are offered twice a year only to our Mailing List,

once in the Fall and again in the Spring.
