Country: United States
- All of our wines are fermented spontaneously.
- Other information: Margins Wine is a small low-intervention winemaking project from Megan Bell. Bell received her BS in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis and apprenticed in wineries and vineyards in Napa, the Livermore Valley, the Willamette Valley, New Zealand's Central Otago, and France's Loire Valley before tending her own vines in the Santa Cruz mountains. Much like people living on the 'margins of society,' vineyards can be outcasts too. Bell works to showcase grapes from underrepresented regions, vineyards, and varietals in her winemaking. Half the grapes for this 'Muscat Blanc' were destemmed and skin fermented for two days with one punchdown per day. The other half of the grapes were whole cluster pressed the day of picking. The two blends were aged separately in neutral oak for 5.5 months and blended before bottling. No fining, no filtration, and no other modifications or additions except 20 ppm of sulfur dioxide the week before bottling.
