MY FRIEND PAN

Whole cluster pinot noir was pressed immediately in the hopes of creating a white wine from the red grape. Over time the color dropped until it reached a beautiful pale pink and Pan decided that was the right shade. We took Pan to bottle with the tiniest amount of residual sugar still left to ferment, which created a dry rose with a delicate effervescence.

SIT TALK

The 2023 is our first take on a Chardonnay and we made it the way we love to drink it – light, bright, and very elegant. Sit Talk is the definition of a crisp white made for popping open mid day to accompany some fresh fish or oysters. At only 10.5% alcohol by volume, you can indulge without carrying the weight of your picnic lunch around with you the rest of the day. We believe that this wine solidifies Michigan Chardonnay as a natty wine staple.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN

The 2023 Leave the Door Open is a blend of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% La Crescent. Both the CF and the LC were fermented on native yeasts separately, before being blended together. The CF delivers classic notes of earthy red fruit and spices, while the LC layers in a tropical brightness that makes this wine so unique. The combination creates an aromatic bouquet of orange blossoms, bright stone fruit on the palette, followed by a dry and refreshing finish.

BEEP BEEP

The 2022 Beep Beep is 100% Cabernet Franc that finished primary fermentation in steel before being racked into neutral oak barrels, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and aged for 8 months. Michigan’s climate can be difficult for some vinifera to reach a ripeness that produces big Bordeaux wines. While those wines serve their purpose, they are not what we set out to produce. Beep Beep was picked and destined to become a light but elegant red wine.

UH OH CUVÉE

The 2022 Uh Oh is a blend of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Riesling. The Cabernet Franc went through primary fermentation on its own before being blended into the still fermenting Riesling. The Cab Franc adds delicious notes of red fruit, on top of more complex earthy and vegetal notes. Combined with the bright citrus flavors from the Riesling, this blend creates an incredibly refreshing and crushable light red wine for any occasion.

THE SHED

You know that place you go to think, tinker, create? That’s the Shed for us. Shed Wine became a twinkle in our eye in the Shed in our yard in Santa Monica, California. We were inspired by the natural wine scene throughout Central and Northern California and wanted to bring those light, juicy, glou glou tastes back to our home state of Michigan. Shed Wine is created with delicious grapes from Leelanau Peninsula using the native yeast for spontaneous fermentation and leaving the wine unfined and unfiltered – producing an unadulterated Northern Michigan wine.
