Viticulture

100% Certified organic methods are used, with emphasis on improving the health of the soil, the groundwater and the wildlife.

Soil

Frey Vineyards are located along the headwaters of the Russian River, in Mendocino County, California, in small inland valleys surrounded by low hills covered with redwood, Douglas fir, madrone, oak and tan oak forests. Typical elevation of vineyards is between 725 feet and 950 feet.

Vinification

Using minimal manipulation in the cellar to allow the authentic character of the soils and climate to show. Frey wines are made without any added sulfites, making them an excellent choice for consumers looking to avoid synthetic preservatives. Bentonite clay is used as the fining agent. Frey wines are Certified Non-GMO.

Aging

Frey wines are aged in stainless steel tanks, which guarantees that wines are gluten-free (often the glues holding oak wine barrels together are wheat-based).

Tasting Note

Flavors of black currant, damson plum, and rose show fullness and vibrancy in this well-balanced Malbec. An elegant, dry finish complements grilled lamb chops or a robust vegetable tagine.
