Is that all stainless…? I get that question a lot about my wines. Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Rosé are all fermented and aged in stainless tanks. They do not go through malolactic fermentation which gives these wines a nice crispness that pairs well with food. I also love to ferment the wines in different vessels, with different yeasts. They are left on the lees and stirred often. I feel this adds a nice complexity to the wines. The wines are then blended and cold/heat stabilized.
I was very excited to unwrap my new stainless drums and my new stainless tank. It felt like Christmas in July. If you would like a tour and tasting of Passaggio Wines just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – it’s a pretty cool place – check it out Dogpatch Wine Works
Hope to see you there!
