Crescere Sauvignon Blanc Ritchie Vineyard 750ml - 13249
Joe Reynoso developed his deep appreciation for farming and affection for the land while listening to stories told by his father, Amado, aunts, uncles, and paternal grandparents, who earned extra money picking crops in the Central Valley. The remote 500 acre estate was originally purchased in 1994 and Joe and Elena began an ambitious planting program that was completed in 2000. Since that time the fruit has been sold to many of the most highly regarded wineries in Sonoma County. The family, along with their vineyard crew, currently farm the 150 acres under vine, keeping only a tiny percentage of the finest grapes on the estate for Crescere . After 20 years of farming and supplying grapes to other wineries, the family decided to embark on a new project with winemaker Philippe Melka , who shares a similar “farming first” ethos. And thus in the fall of 2016, with a focus on making vineyard specific wines using state-of-the-art winemaking resources and techniques, Crescere was born. The grapes for Crescere Estate wines are selected by Philippe from the finest parcels and rows, and are farmed to his exacting standards. This collaboration ensures Crescere’s unforgettable wines leave an indelible mark on the landscape for collectors and experience-oriented consumers alike.
