Out to the Meadow 2023

66% Chenin blanc, 15% Trousseau gris, 11% Vermentino, 6% Green Hungarian, 2% Chasselas Doré · Suisun Valley

The remarkably long, gentle growing season of 2023 brings a balanced richness to this spring favorite. We picked this vineyard about three weeks later than prior years, allowing nature extra time to fully ripen this historic field blend. Expect a waxy honeyed aroma and a looooong finish.

Enjoy With

Anything that makes you feel like you’re the host of your own cooking show. Lean on leeks, fennel, and lots of salted butter for an effortlessly lush episode in the kitchen.

Drink When

You’re shedding your scarves and soaking in the first rays of springtime. In many ways this year’s blend reminds us of a Savoie white, grown under the warm California sun.

Martha's Notes

I feel very lucky to work with this one-of-a-kind parcel in Suisun Valley. Matthew Rorick of Forlorn Hope Wines researched what a historic Californian white field blend would have been comprised of, then took cuttings from some of the few remaining vineyards still growing these grapes before the vines were pulled out of the ground, and convinced grower Roger King to create this “library block” from them. Matthew passed the torch to me and I now work with this small block exclusively. I named the wine after the landowner and farmer, Roger King, who came down from the mountain after a youth of skiing, and went ‘out to the meadow’ to grow wine grapes. Roger has been enthusiastically farming it for 30 years. After naming the wine I found a Tom Waits interview where he uses the expression "We went out to the meadow" to describe a synergistic collaboration among musicians. This makes sense. I think the grape varieties all have a synergy when co-fermented, and Roger has also been the most collaborative grower I have ever worked with.
