Looks like these are the folks that make the district 7 and ranch 32 labels.
Yep, same folks.
Might have a go at these. Looks like some good juice and worth taking a flyer. Interesting story, you kind of have to toggle between the Scheid and Metz Road websites but all certified sustainable vineyards. Been around over 40 years, family run, selling most of their fruit as bulk juice.
They sound like solid wines & I’m tempted, but doesn’t seem like a particularly good deal. Unfortunately seems to be a trend on Woot lately…
Morning all! Wine team here to answer any questions you might have. Excited to bring you our award winning wines!
Hi - Thanks for the feedback — hope you’ll give us a try this time and enjoy some Metz Road Pinot Noir or Chardonnay for the holidays. We threw in shipping to help make it a little more tempting—let us know what we can do to improve the package and we’ll do our best to accommodate!
Hi there - the secret is out! Well, it’s not really a secret—we’ve been growing grapes for 42 years but only recently decided to keep a small portion of the very best grapes for ourselves and make a little wine. We like to share, but with about 4,000 acres of estate vineyards on the central coast we can keep 1% for ourselves, make some delicious Metz Road wines and still keep all the other wineries happy—win, win, win.
Can we get some lab notes?
Specs are lacking the simplest, AbV.
Hi there, here are some of the basic stats on these wines
Alcohol=13.8%; TA=0.84 g/100mL; pH 3.32; RS=<0.5 g/100ml; Chardonnay Clone 3; Harvested October 10, 2012.
2012 Pinot Noir
Alcohol=13.8%; TA=0.60 g/100mL; pH= 3.60; RS=<0.2g/100mL; Pinot Noir Clones 667 & 777; Harvested October 11, 2012
Wow, really a slow day here, I just got back to check in.
Thanks for getting back with those Dave. Good to see the lower AbV levels as expected for Chard and PN, as well as the pH on the Chard, look solid.
