Wine Making:
Guinness McFadden has been growing grapes organically for over 40 years. He planted his vineyard on a beautiful peice of land that straddles the Russian River, neighbors the Mendocino National Forest and sits up at 1,200 feet in altitude. Temperatures regularly plummet 40-45 degrees each night, allowing a longer maturation period. In this climate, grapes develop a fullness of flavor that is balanced by a crisp acidity. Blue quail´┐Ż??s wines are stainless steel fermented and held with zero malolactic fermentation.
