ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Pax and Pam Mahle

“Pax and Pam moved to wine country in 1997 to create a lifestyle that involved working with wine. After a few years of tasting and sourcing wine from all over California, Pax finally found a vineyard in which he felt a kismet connection. Alder Springs Vineyard was the site and subsequently led to the launch of the PAX brand in 2000.

“Their entire lineup of wines came from cool climate vineyards in  Sonoma County and Mendocino.

“At Pax Wines winemaking is approached holistically. This is done by taking care to use only grapes that are grown without the use of chemicals and by hand making their wines with as little intervention as possible. As a result, all of their wines are crushed by foot and hand, and fermented using only natural yeasts.” (paxwine.com)

ABOUT THE VINEYARDS: 
“Tucked away in the Russian River Valley, we stumbled upon this small parcel of Trousseau Gris (a rising star after years of relative anonymity) in 2009 and haven’t looked back. Originally known as Gray Riesling, this is one of the only standing plots of Trousseau Gris remaining in California. Usually our first crush of harvest, the fruit arrives any array of colors from green to purple to orange.”
