ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Kenny Likitprakong, Hobo Wine Co.
"Camp Wines were created by the Hobo Wine Co. in 2011 to showcase the quality and value of Sonoma County wine. They work with top growers and vineyard managers in very high quality and responsibly farmed, though lesser known, vineyards throughout Sonoma County to produce delicious, approachable, and affordable wines. Like Hobo, the Camp wines employ native yeasts and malolactic bacterias for the primary and secondary fermentations without the use of commercial fermentation aids or additives. The wines are aged in real oak barrels and/or stainless steel tanks vs. alternatives or flavoring agents."
