Like many things we create these days at Martha Stoumen Wines, making a spritzer was born from the combination of our love of experimentation and the reality of a changing climate. During the widespread smoke and fires of the 2020 vintage, I wasn’t comfortable making any of our higher price point age-worthy red wines because I expected they may suffer quality-wise—tasting of smoke taint—or have to be heavily manipulated to remove smoke taint. As a small business, when we look at sustainability we don’t only look at our environment and workers, we also look at our long-term financial sustainability, and how to achieve this while sticking to the promises we’ve made to ourselves and our customers. And the wildfires of 2020 weren’t a new problem, just a bigger one than the fires we’d faced since 2017.
In order to remain financially healthy in a world where climate resilience is increasingly important on all fronts, we’d need something more predictable than age-worthy red wines to float our ship and keep our cash flow steady. I knew a product that could have a flexible base—likely from white grapes, always well farmed though—would be key. Meanwhile, the less pragmatic and creatively indulgent side of me had been dreaming of making a lower alcohol, subtle but elegant spritzer, derived from completely natural and elemental ingredients. After many fun weeks of experimentation in our alchemy lab (our office), Tim and I finalized our foray into the world of wine spritzers, naturally. Try It Out! is an ode to creativity, being your true self, and forging ahead. Cin-cin!

The base wine in the 2021 Try It Out! is a blend of certified biodynamic Vermentino with a co-ferment of certified organic Marsanne, Roussanne, and Muscat blanc. These components were fermented completely dry and aged separately in stainless steel vessels for 6 months before blending with filtered water, organic Meyer lemon spirit infusion, and just a hint of orange blossom water for subtle aromatics. Once blended, we gently filtered the finished product for stability and then bubbled carbon dioxide through a pressurized tank to achieve a light, playful spritz.
Chilly // 50-55°F (10-13°C) // A little frost on the glass should fade as you warm up with this wine.
