A light and fruity wine that easy to sip! The gift pack also includes the 2010 Petite Sirah. This big and bold wine is perfect to pair with big rich food dishes. A $50 value, the holiday pack is being offered for $40.00 plus tax and includes two complimentary wine tasting cards!

    Twisted Roots Carmel Valley Tasting Room:
    Open Friday through Sunday (11:30 a.m.-5 p.m.), the tasting room will pour wines created from estate grapes on vines first planted in Lodi in 1918. Did you know the winery's name came from a twisted root that the family dug up from the vineyard?

    Tastings are $5 and include four wines:
    -2010 Chardonnay, aged in neutral oak and finished with a medium toasted oak finish
    2009 Cabernet Sauvignon that won a gold medal in the 2012 California State Fair Competition and best of the Lodi Appellation
    2010 Cabernet Sauvignon that won a gold medal in the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle wine competition
    2010 Petite Sirah, the family's flagship wine.
    --1918 Old Vine Zinfandel our most popular.

    Twisted Roots Information:
    At Twisted Roots, we believe in letting the grapes speak for themselves. Partner Josh Ruiz, representing partners Ross Schmiedt and Mike Hodge, stated that, "We feel that our work in the vineyard is the genesis for the flavor and overall complexity of our wines. As Lodi Certified Green Growers we follow sustainable farming practices throughout the entire winemaking process. "

    For every bottle sold, Twisted Roots donates a portion of the proceeds to the ALS Foundation for research into ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Our partner and creator of the Twisted Roots brand is afflicted with ALS. Additionally, Twisted Roots donates money to MEarth and its Hilton Bialek Habitat at Carmel Middle School. As Josh said, "Twisted Roots wants to make good quality wine and give back to their communities."

    Twisted Roots Story:
    Centered in the heart of the Lodi Appellation, Twisted Roots Vineyard is the work of three generations of family members dedicated to the practice of growing great wine grapes by following sustainable growing practices. While our vineyard was established in 1918, it wasn't until recently that we began producing our own wines.

    The Twisted Roots Vineyard label started with a Petite Sirah in 2005 by Ross, after experimenting in the basement of the original farmhouse. In 2009, we began commercial production and expanded our offerings to include other varietals grown on the estate. Winemaking was moved subsequently from the old farmhouse to our partners at Estate Crush. Petite Sirah continues to be our flagship wine; we also offer Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Old Vine Zinfandel.

    Winemaking
    At Twisted Roots Vineyard, we believe in letting the grapes speak for themselves. We feel that our work in the vineyard is where our wines get their flavor and overall complexity. As "green" growers, we follow sustainable farming practices throughout the entire winemaking process. From our attention to soil-nutrient balance in the vineyard, to our barrel-fermentation and small production each year, we feel as though we can produce products that showcase the grapes and the Lodi Appellation.

    As a part of our philosophy of "letting the fruit speak for itself," we prefer to use neutral French oak barrels to ferment and age both our red and white wines. By the time a barrel is about 5 years old, it is virtually "neutral" as far as its influence on the taste of the wine, and is used as a vessel for aging. This allows the grapes, either red or white, to express more of their natural flavors thus preventing you from being overwhelmed with oak flavor. As the wine goes through secondary fermentation in these neutral barrels, it takes on some of the very subtle oak flavors, which are a distant second to the grapes.
