La garagista | Vinu Jancu | Vermont La Crescent | 12,5 alc./vol. | $36.99 / 750ml

It is our great pleasure to announce the latest release of craveable wine from La garagista…  Vinu Jancu.

From the vino vessel:

La garagista:  n.  one who makes wine in a garage; one who works in a garage; one who uses all parts of a garage.

Vinu Jancu

Vinu Jancu is an old Sicilian name for white wines made in an orange wine manner.  This style has a deep nobility with a long history in the Eurasian production areas of Armenia & Georgia, but also found in Italy, Sicily, and other alpine areas of Europe.  The white wine grapes are treated like red grapes: the juice ferments on the grape skins and remain sur lie long afterward, taking on more color (hence the orange), tannin, texture, and aromatics.

This Vinu Jancu is made from La Crescent, a descendant of Muscat de Hambourg, and grown on the hills and valleys of Vermont.  Hand-picked and hand-sorted, this honest, unfiltered wine was crushed traditionally and fermented on native yeast at our cantina, and remained sur lie for the winter in glass demijohns.

Art of the vine… passion of the heart… delight of the senses…  La garagista wines continue to delight us and our friends every time we are blessed with them.

We are jubilant with the latest La garagist vin to grace our shelves – Ci Confonde.  This sparkling gem will only be around for a short time, so get yours while you can!

From the bottle:

 (Chi•con•fond•ay) It confounds us.  Surprises.  Dumbfounds.  Slays.  Bedazzles.  Staggers.  Shakes.  We’re feeling a bit bedazzled by petillant naturel, an old-style first fermentation in bottle.  Our Ci Confonde White is bottles shortly after harvest, and left to finish its frothy alchemy under the cap, creating a fine bead of pearly effervescence.  Hand-harvested and unfiltered, this alpine sparkling hails from our vineyards in the northern climate of Vermont.

Harlots & Ruffians bottle talk:

Harlots and Ruffians is a white wine field blend from our vineyard in an open meadow replete with Queen’s Anne’s Lace and red clover.

The name is inspired by a medieval recipe that we like to cook in the winter called an Orange Omelet for Harlots and Ruffians, created by a German chef for an Italian pope in the 1400’s, a cook who shaped recipes for both harlots and prices.

Likewise, we believe this wine is suitable for both ascetics and debauchees, but rest assured it can be enjoyed without risk of moral corruption.

Hand harvested and unfiltered, this wine speaks of our alpine vineyards here in the valleys and hills of Vermont.
