From the producer: Our Love Red is the everyday, anytime California red wine we love to make as a showcase of old heritage vines that produce amazing fruit. This year’s Love Red is more dynamic than in past vintages, with a subtle touch of tannin and pleasant structure to pair with food, while remaining light and fresh. The grapes were harvested early to highlight the fruit and preserve their natural acidity. The Carignan and Valdiguié were naturally fermented as a mix of partially destemmed and whole cluster berries and went through partial carbonic maceration in stainless steel tank. All aged in a mix of neutral French oak barrique and stainless steel. 56% Carignan, 22% Syrah, 12% Grenache Noir, 10% Valdiguie.

Chris Brockway is a winemaker who is making wine the way it has been made for centuries. No additives, no pesticides, no added yeast, no herbicides, nothing but the grapes and whatever yeast is on them. Chris is simply making fermented grape juice, a.k.a. wine.

Brockway checks all the "New California" boxes: he makes his wines in Southwest Berkeley, uses minimal intervention techniques, and sources fruit from obscure grapes grown in out of the way places. Chris, though, is actually part of a very long and noble winemaking tradition, and he certainly does not seek out the obscure for the sake of being obscure. As quoted in an Eric Asimov article from a few years ago that put his wines on the map:

“I'm not trying to out-weird anybody or obscure anybody,” he said. “We're trying to get back to a more traditional conception of what wine used to be. Also, we like to drink wine, so lower alcohol is important.”
