With extended barrel aging prior to bottling, we see an increase in vineyard expression. The clonal diversity of this wine brings complexity and balance to the whole.
For the 2021 vintage we've added something different to our "grape wine" - apple juice! Made with pomace of Bläufrankisch, Zweigelt, St. Laurent, and Kerner, along with biodynamically grown apples from Mt. Hood and our own property, we've added an exciting twist to standard Piquette.
This barrel selection focuses on highlighting those barrels that exude characteristics of power and weight, leading to a more masculine expression of Pinot Noir from our site.

The blend is comprised of the three Austrian varieties we have growing at Johan, with approximately 55% Blaufränkisch, 32% St. Laurent, and 13% Zweigelt. This light-bodied red blend is bright, juicy, and oh-so-quaffable!
The Drueskall (“grape skin” in Norwegian) is a skin fermented white wine made from the Pinot Gris grape. Our goal is to craft a wine that has the structure of a red wine combined with a full range of tertiary white wine aromas.
