Notes from the Producer: We are Aaron and Cara Mockrish .Since 2015, we have been farming grapes and raising wines in the North Yuba AVA, which includes the tiny Gold Rush village of Frenchtown we call home.We have created a life around a connection to nature through farming, working with our hands to grow and bottle wines that reflect our stunning terroir.We are fortunate to tend both old, own-rooted and dry farmed vines nearby, as well as to be establishing our own new vines on the steep, rocky slopes of our home vineyard.

Our annual rhythm is driven by seasonal agricultural cycles. Throughout each year as we carefully prune, tie, tuck, tend and hand-harvest each vine, we constantly ask ourselves how best to express the special place we live and how best to bottle all of the vibrations we feel in a way that is alive and true. To try and achieve this we farm without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or systemic fungicides, spraying only organic elemental sulfur at key times during the growing season, always looking to replace machines with people and efficiency with attention. We pay the vines with attention, pouring all of our energy into the vineyards so that we are able keep our efforts in the cellar relatively simple, letting the wines make themselves.
