About Subject to Change Big Sun Energy Grenache
Subject to Change Big Sun Energy Grenache is sourced from Sun Hawk Farms in Mendocino. Native yeast fermentation and sees no fining, filtration, or sulfur. This vibrant Grenache hails from a biodynamically-farmed vineyard on the very top of a pretty hill overlooking the town of Hopland in Mendocino
County, where a bunch of grapes grows happily together, as if in a commune (which is totally appropriate in this super hippie area). We always love Alex’s talk about his wines. Here’s his take on Big Sun Energy: “We’ve been working with this special plot of land since our first vintage. It is farmed biodynamically by the legendary Manuel Neunez. He has single-handedly transformed this vineyard into the epic site it is today. The vineyard gets a long day of sun and is very difficult to farm. The grapes go through 2 weeks of carbonic maceration, are foot crushed, and then spend 6 weeks on their skins.
This wine has balanced acidity with hints of tobacco, and the experience of warm vine-ripened bramble berries popped into your mouth at the moment after being plucked from the vine. You can taste the time spent under those strong rays of the sun. Cracked pepper and eucalyptus add delightful savory notes.”
About Subject to Change Winery
Subject to Change makes wines with a strong character that are unique, fresh, and sometimes offbeat. The winery sources grapes exclusively from organic vineyards and makes the wines with no additions or subtractions in the cellar. Organic farming practices and the omission of added sulfur yield high energy wines with a lot to say.
Subject to Change was founded with a true love for drinking wine as a canvas for enjoying time with loved ones and meeting new fascinating people. In California, a place where wine production has been marked by rules and rigor, there’s a new movement of free-thinking producers with which we’re proudly associated. This movement is characterized by an affinity for experimentation, eschewing conformation to traditional ideals, and a desire to make wine exciting, accessible, and social. Grab a bottle, pop a cork, and don’t think too much if you don’t want to.
