2021 Birdhorse- Heliotropes
Regular price $35.00
Heliotropes California Red came into existence out of a hope to bring together queer makers in support of one another. We were approached by our friends at Sacred Thirst Selections, asking if we would be interested in creating a wine, pairing up with a queer artist to design the label, and then donating a portion of the proceeds from said wine to a charitable cause.
The Cause A portion of the proceeds from this wine will be donated to The People's Pottery Project. Their mission is to employ and empower formerly incarcerated women, trans and non-binary individuals through paid job training, access to a healing community, and meaningful employment in their collective non-profit ceramic business.
The Wine & Vineyard The Cinsault grapes for this wine hail from the 3000 ft elevation Snows Cross vineyard just outside of the town of Camino in El Dorado County. The vineyard sits on red, volcanic soils common to this area, on a south facing slope that is bathed in sunlight from sunrise to sunset.
Bright, zesty red fruit defines this wine. Juicy bing cherry, rhubarb, anise seed, fresh strawberry. A delightful, chillable red perfect for spring and summertime. Take it to a park. Or a beach. Or a beach park. Just get in the sunshine and enjoy.
