Keep it natural, baby.
Inspired by the white wines of the Jura and Savoie regions of the French Alps, this blend of high elevation sites from the Shasta-Cascade regions of the Trinity Alps and Oregon's Siskiyou Wilderness. Aromas of dried flowers and brush are framed by electric acidity, almond and citrus -- imagine dropping a Ricola into a margarita and setting off in a canoe. Taste the Alps!
Methode Sauvage was started in 2013 by Chad Hinds. They began, striving to find a voice for California Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc from all over the state.
In the Spring of 2018 they began planting a vineyard in the California Alps of Siskiyou County, using the permaculture methods laid out by Masanobu Fukuoka. In the spirit of this new project they have begun experimenting with wine styles and varietals from the Alps of Europe.
They seek to make wine with a sense of place by employing no additives, and removing no character. They explore a diverse array of exceptional vineyard sites, with the goal of channeling terroir, and showcasing California's diversity.
