From www.shelburnevineyard.com/capsize:

We’re not knocking your candle-lit dinners or sliding into an Adirondack chair with your favorite bottle of wine on a warm summer night. Don’t get us wrong, we love those things too.

But we’re Vermonters, which means equal parts relaxing and roving. And it’s clear that your favorite bottle of wine isn’t following you to the top of Mt. Mansfield or rowing you out to the center of Lake Champlain.

Sustainably grown, damn good Vermont wine. Anywhere.

Where do Capsize Wines come from?

From the east bank of the Champlain Valley, on the sunny Shelburne slopes in the brave little state of Vermont. The grapes are grown and wines are crafted by the team at Shelburne Vineyard.

Why “Capsize”?

We’re a wine for people who live life adventurously, who head out to the wild like true Vermonters. We also know that any excursion isn’t much fun without a bit of controlled chaos. That’s why our motto is “If you flip the boat, the cans will float”. If you need a fun and refreshing break from your journey, we’ll be there.

Is wine in a can as good as wine in a bottle?

We believe it is. It should theoretically be more stable than wine in a bottle, because there is virtually no risk of the wine developing a fault due to the lack of oxygen exchange that a cork allows.

How should I drink it?

Whatever the situation allows. If hiking a ridge trail, glasses are going to weigh you down. If relaxing on your back porch, pour it out. It tastes great either way!

The wines taste best when served icy cold.

What sort of wine is it?

It is comprised of two Hybrid varietals: Louise Swenson and LaCrescent. Louise gives the wine it’s refreshing and bright characteristics. The LaCrescent gives it that distinct, delicious fruit aroma. All of the grapes that go into our wines are grown and hand-harvested in Vermont.

How much wine is in a can?

Each can is 250mL, which equals 8.5oz. That is almost two glasses of wine! Capsize is sold in 4-packs, and 4 cans equals 1 liter of wine. That is one and a third standard bottles!

Where can I get it?

Wherever Shelburne Vineyard wines are sold [like the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, of course!].

More info on Les Chemin de Bassac from wonderful natural wine importers Jenny & Francois Selections:

Isabelle and Rémy Ducellier took possession of this 19th century estate in the mid-nineties and have been producing a stunning array of wines ever since. The Chemins de Bassac vineyards are 100 meters above sea level and located near the village of Puimisson, which is 12 km north of Béziers, hence the vineyards benefit greatly from the nearby Mediterranean Sea.

www.cheminsdebassac.com

Certification: Certified Organic, Ecocert & NOP.

Age of Vines: 15 years

Pruning Method: Eight-bud double Cordon de Royat

Soil: Limestone & clay, large stones across well-drained topsoil

Varieties: Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre and Syrah

Vinification Method: The grape bunches are completely destemmed and each variety is vinified separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness of the fruit and all of the individual flavors and aromatics. The saignée method is utilized in making this cuvée and the final blend is racked statically. Fermentation lasts for a month at temperatures below 20° C. The wine rests in tank until early spring when it is bottled and released.

Tasting Note: A light ruby-salmon in the glass, it is fully loaded with depth, complexity and personality. On the palate rich, lively strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavors are present. It shows impressive balance, medium body, a smooth mouth-feel and a persistent, crisp, dry finish.

Pairing: Grilled fish dishes, as well as hearty garden salads and summer pasta dishes.

The Winery:
Wilde Farm was a place long before it was a wine. Built in 1907 on the estate of Samuel Wilde, a successful coffee and spice trader, Wilde Farm began as a horse farm, with a generous kitchen garden of vegetables and herbs. It is of the Colonial Revival style popular at the time. The edifice itself is purposefully constructed, with hand-hewn floorboards, chestnut moldings, high, plastered ceilings and strong, honest lines. Much like its eponymous wine, the house was expertly crafted of honest materials and made to age gracefully. About twenty years ago, my wife and I took over custody of Wilde Farm. There we have raised three beautiful boys, in the only home they have ever known.

Wilde Farm makes wines from old vines and exceptional vineyards. Quantities are very small. Our wines are bright, balanced and made by hand. They emphasize a balance of acid and fruit. As an added bonus they age great.

Pax Mahle makes Wilde Farm wines. He has a light touch and a craftsman’s approach. Together, we work hard to ensure that Pax has the best materials available and that as a team we screw it up as little as possible. We source grapes from old vine, low yield sites, where soil, climate and honest farming practices allow for a full expression of the type of grape and the place the grapes come from. We only offer vineyard designated wines (so far).We pick when the grapes are ripe and ready. Yeasts are ambient, oak is neutral and fermentation happens at its own pace. We sometimes include stems in the primary fermentation, when it makes sense. We bottle our wines unfined and unfiltered. We sell them when we think they are delicious.

Winemaker’s notes:
Vibrant and fresh with a compelling depth of aroma of effusive cinnamon laced black red & blue fruits. The palate is loaded w/ fresh fruit, spice and a supple core of spicier fruit. Weighty and textural this is really delicious served w/ a chill.

  • Alcohol: 12.4%
  • pH: 3.48
  • Cases Produced: 70

Fox Hill Vineyard:
Wilde Farm Dolcetto comes exclusively from The Fox Hill vineyard, located just south of the town of Ukiah on the Talmage Bench. The soils are well-drained, with high concentrations of gravel and sandstone. Fig, apple and plum trees dot the grounds, as well as an acre of olive trees. The Dolcetto we source comes from the cooler, tree-shaded, north-west facing slopes. This wine goes through complete carbonic fermentation with native yeasts and is raised naturally for only 6 months in neutral french barrique with no sulfur added.
