About the Producer: 

"Sandi Skerk's property is only 500m from the border of Slovenia in the Carso appellation of Friuli in the far North Eastern corner of Italy.  His entire process is natural, not because it is the trendy thing to do, but because it does not make sense to Sandi to make wine any other way. 

When asked about the style of winemaking that seems to be the trend in the Carso DOC, ie. long skin contact for the whites, Sandi talks about the great respect he has for his grandfather, who also made wine on the family's property, and about wanting to follow his technique. Making wine before it was common to use SO2 as a preservative, Sandi's grandfather used the technique of extended skin contact for his white wines. The tannins in the skins protect the wines from oxidation, allowing Sandi to use very little SO2 in his winemaking.  Sandi is one of the great winemakers making natural wine well; his wines show impressive clarity, balance, and depth on the palate."  

Alcohol: 14%
