Our 10th Bottling of Testa Black is a secret blend of Testa Black organic farmed fruit, hand crafted from 100% grapes- ZERO additives - aged in neutral french oak for 3 years.
Testa Black is a balanced wine that we craft each year as a family from our vineyards that our family has been farming since 1912. We have the most amaznig fruit to make this wine with and it allows us to craft our signature blend in the way we all enjoy it. Our full bodied blend is full of dark fruit has medium tannin, smooth and lingering finish. It is simply delicious and pairs wonderfully with just about everything!
This Charbono was hand picked from over 60 year old vines my Uncle Charlie and Aunt Lee planted in their youth. It's a beautiful, velvety black wine with lively fruit and earthy balance; much like Uncle Charlies Bride Lee, a city girl who came to Calpella to be with her soldier and farm his family vineyards.
Charbono is a very RARE varietal wine in the United States. There are about 70 acres of it planted in the US. Here in Calpella between us and our neighbors we have close to 15% of those acres!
This dark rich looking wine will amaze you with its gentle yet apparent fruit flavors.
This is our CORO Mendocino Blend, and we are so honored to be a part of such an amazing group of Mendocino County Winemakers! We are proud to share our blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Carignane, Charbono and Petite Sirah grapes, all hand picked from our estate vineyards and fermented on their native yeast. Lighter style Zin, but full body, and packed with flavor all at the same time, just how I like it!
