When Jay Heminway purchased the Hardscrabble property in 1969, it included a cold water hunting cabin, a burned down barn, and an abandoned Fleetwood Cadillac. While exploring the property, he stumbled on the remains of century-old vines from the old Rancho Catacula, grown on a mix of Red Chert soils with oceanic Green Serpentine veins. Thus, Green & Red was born, and a single vine from that original vineyard still produces grapes to this day.

From a 1.71 acre vineyard of east-facing hillside terraces, which sit below the morning fog line at 1000-1400ft elevation. The soils are Red Chert veined with Green Serpentine, the winery’s namesake, intermixed with Sobrante Loam. Whole cluster pressed juice is fermented in a near 50/50 mix of stainless steel and neutral oak barrels, with one new Tonnellerie Ermitage French oak barrel. Malolactic fermentation was prevented to keep the aromatics fresh & the acidity crisp.

Floral aromas of fresh jasmine, grapefruit blossom, verbena, and chamomile meet tropical & stone fruit flavors, honeydew, and citrus rind. Clean & specific, the ample, well-balanced flavors and racy acidity become more expressive and intriguing with every sip, before a long, bright, lemon custard-tinged finish.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Sustainable.
