Model Farm is a small vigneron project and our labor of love. We strive to craft honest, soulful wines that speak to their unique time and place. We have chosen to take on the ambitious task of farming our vineyards ourselves in order to better understand the intimate, complicated relationship between vineyard and wine. All of our vineyard practices are organic, and we farm by hand, without the use of a tractor. This attentive, hands on farming style allows us to be hands off in the cellar. To preserve the integrity of terroir and our hard work we use minimalist, old world winemaking techniques. Our wines are all fermented with native yeasts, many are whole cluster, and none see new oak.
Our next release will feature our 2017 Petaluma Gap Syrah.
Production for the vintage was a limited 75 cases. Please sign up for our mailing list below to be notified of the offering. For inquiries about purchasing previous releases, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
As with previous releases, the 2017 Syrah comes exclusively from our Model Farm vineyard in the cool, breezy Petaluma Gap. We farm our two acre site organically and by hand. After 270+ days of farming, we then produce the wine ourselves in a classic, Old World style at our winery in Sonoma.
