New! - Scenic Root Winegrowers
The Henry Wine Group is happy to announce the addition of Textbook, The Forager, Pey-Marin and Spicerack from Scenic Root Winegrowers.
They bring a combined fifty years experience to their winemaking and grow and produce a handful of small parcels of wines from Napa Valley, Marin County, and the Sonoma Coast along with other vineyards across California's most scenic and celebrated winegrowing regions. Each of their wines expresses its unique provenance and personality and boasts its own label, depending on its growing appellation.
TEXTBOOK specializes in crafting small lots of exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay from some of Napa Valley’s finest locales. Handmade in every way, they express the best of Napa Valley.
The FORAGER embraces the best of Burgundy’s "Viticulteur-Negociant" principles, crafting delicious wines from carefully-selected grapes and barrels they have “foraged” from like-minded artisans along the coast – along with delicious lots from their own cellars. They look only toward creating small lots of cool-climate wines that are sublime.
PEY-MARIN VINEYARDS In 1999, after several decades of working for other vintners around the world, they decided to do something different, to contribute their expertise to a promising but unknown wine region – Marin County. Pey-Marin Vineyards specializes in crafting small lots of flavorful, handmade Pinot Noir and dry Riesling from the rugged hills of western Marin County.
SPICERACK They craft only about 25 barrels/year of thier Spicerack Syrah. It gets its name from the many times the fermenting grape “cap” is punched down into the heady must to extract color and flavor. Richly textured yet beautifully balanced.
