Sol Rouge is a 70 acre family estate located in the Mayacamas Mountains at elevations averaging over 1800 feet. North of Napa in the foothills of a dormant volcano which formed the North Coast wine country in the Red Hills Appellation of Lake County, this land contains rich, red volcanic soil and, from this unique profile, Sol Rouge derived its name – translating to “Red Soil” in French. Grapes are planted in a “high vine density” configuration allowing each vine to focus on fewer clusters of fruit, leading to greater complexity. Nestled between Mt. Konocti and Benson Ridge, this aggressive sight is all hillside with slopes up to 60% and is said to be the most aggressive and tightly planted vineyard in the Red Hills, with nearly 6000 vines per hectare in some blocks.
“Our 2017 Gypsy Rouge is truly a reflection of the Sol Rouge Estate planting which is mostly planted with Grenache as well as other Rhone varietals. A blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsaut, Syrah, and Counoise all comes from the Sol Rouge Estate Vineyard and its Rhone varietal plantings. This Grenache based blend reflects the wine for which the estate vineyard was planted, mostly with Grenache and a series of other varietals found mostly in the Southern Rhone Region of France. ” – Proprietor/Winemaker Bryan Kane
