Certified Biodynamic & Certifed Organic
A blend of equal parts Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc, a common combination for the white wines of the region, and here made into an orange wine via a week of maceration on the skins. Certified biodynamically farmed grapes, therefore no pesticides or insecticides used in the farming. Native yeast fermentation, aged in steel tanks, bottled slightly hazy without any fining or filtering and only a tiny degree of sulfites. All at a breezy 11% ABV, an orange for afternoon chilling.
Gulp/Hablo's Orange is 100% biodynamically farmed blend from central Spain. Gulp/Hablo is a partnership with Juan Antonio Ponce of Bodegas Ponce. This certified organic/Biodynamic Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc from central Spain is neither co-op nor negociant juice. The fruit comes from the Parra family's 445 acres of vineyards near La Mancha, most of which are reserved for their Friend and Farmer and Hand Work labels.
