Megan had been sitting on the name of this blend for a few years, waiting for the right opportunity to come along. During harvest 2020 the occasion presented itself when a fermentation didn’t work as planned, and she needed to find a creative solution to generate the best possible outcome. She started doing blending trials with the goal of creating a cuvée that brought out the best in what she had to work with. Harvest 2021 was a wonderful harvest with no fermentation complications, but from now on she will continue to play with blending under this cuvée name, as a light-hearted juxtaposition to the single vineyard/single varietal wines that Margins has focused on thus far.
Margins produces low-intervention wines using grapes from underrepresented regions, vineyards, and varietals. We are part of the growing movement in California to make wines from vineyards farmed organically or in organic conversion using minimal additives during the winemaking process, thereby showcasing the vineyards the grapes came from.
Much like people living on the 'margins of society,' vineyards can be outcasts too. Most consumers of wine are only familiar with a handful of grape growing regions and types of wine. Margins draws attention to vineyards and varietals throughout northern and central California that find themselves on the margins without the recognition they deserve.
Part of the Margins mission over the last five years has been to work with small growers to transition their vineyards from conventional to organic farming by providing guidance as well as assurance that the grapes will have a home. We believe that if we worked solely with organic vineyards, we would not be using our role in the industry to its full potential to enact agricultural change. As of vintage 2021, all the vineyards Margins works with are farmed organically.
