The Sleeping Co-Pilot

The wine gets its name from the intern that worked with us during the first season of making this wine. When collecting the grapes his only job was to keep me awake with conversation but 30 minutes into the drive I found myself the only one awake while my co-pilot was sleeping.

We just made it….

Whole bunch fermented for 14 days on the skins in open tanks.

Aged in old 500L & 300L  barrels for 10 months.
