The Producer: Born and raised in Sonoma, Mike Lucia's wine life began at a young age. He earned his viticulture degree and went on to work for a handful of well known wineries before focusing all of his efforts on Rootdown.
The Why:This orange wine has all of the best qualities of west coast Pinot Gris. Honey on the nose, the palate is lush with citrus pith and slight minerality. The skin contact gives the wine its velvety tannins.
