Rare Grape! According to Jancis Robinson, the name Ruché was derived from roncet which was a virus that Ruché was, in fact, resilient to! Brought here by Randall Grahm in the early 2000s from Castagnole Monferrato in the province of Asti in Piemonte, Italy, to his Popelouchum in San Benito County. The late and great Ron Siletto purchased cuttings from Randall to be grafted to his vines in his Caleri Vineyard just down the road in Tres Pinos, CA. Now farmed by Ron's son, John, and vineyard manager Manuel carefully tend to these amazing three rows of vines which produce just about a ton in 2020. The results speak for themselves as the Ruché is the best representation of San Benito AVA and the Piedmont Region of Italy clashing together in an exuberant and wild wine! Unfined, unfiltered, transition organic farming practices, vegan, wild yeast, nothing but sulfites added. This wine is Hollow Wines unapologetically winning. Somm Tasting Notes: Rose Petals, Hibiscus, Raspberries, Tart Cherry Pie, and Oolong Tea.
