Field Recording Pet Nat Wines!

Field Recordings Salad Days Sparkling Wine...$17.99
Salad Days Pet Nat is an insanely crushable blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc & Colombard. Why Salad Days? Short answer, because it's flavors are green & fresh. Long answer, at just 9.9% abv, some days, you just need a salad after a weekend of pork stuff, potatoes, pizza & Petite Sirah (or is that just me?). Salad Days is super bright & fresh - on the nose it's all about crisp pear, green apple, lemon & green herbs - the palate is light & refreshing with a soft kiss of Pet Nat bubbles. As a point of reference, if you enjoy bright white wines with lively acidity & some verve, and you trust us - you are going to love this. It's the perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch, aperitif wine.

2021 Field Recordings Shirts Chardonnay...$19.99
100% Chardonnay
Full press. Mix it up. Everyone's feeling it. Pop, dish and spin. Let's pick teams. It's a time honored tradition.  Opens up with a nose full of pears and clementines. Super fresh and clean like an ocean breeze. On the palate, ripe stone fruit, more citrus and pie crust.
Pairs well with Exploreteaur Triple Cream, Saturday afternoon kid sports, all the salads

2022 Field Recordings Posie Sparking White Wine...$19.99
100% Muscat Canelli
Many of you are probably familiar with Muscat. Some call it Muscat Blanc, some call it Muscat Canelli, some just know the term Moscato. POSIE is made up of 100% Muscat grapes, but it’s nothing like you might expect.  We had the opportunity to work with a 25-year-old Muscat vineyard in the North Canyon of the Santa Maria Valley. We picked these grapes when they were perfect for our normal Pet Nat — early in the season, before the heat wave, so we got just the right amount of acidity in the final wine.  Just like our other Pet Nat wines, this one is bone dry. It’s not your typical sweet Muscat, but when you pop and pour your first glass, be ready for those surreal floral aromas to take over your living room. Super versatile for serving. Great by itself on a warm afternoon, or pop it for the whole family. Try it with your Mother's Day brunch or — our personal favorite — a Friday evening Midwestern fish fry.

2022 Field Recordings Skins Orange Wine...$19.99
35% Chenin Blanc, 35% Pinot Gris, 12% Albarino, 12% Riesling, 4% Tocai Friulano, 2% Verdelho
A crisp orange wine perfect to pair with spicy foods, springtime and ... well, anything. The 2017 vintage of this wine landed us on Sunset Magazine’s top 100 wines list. It will make you a believer in non-red wines. We use a mix of white grapes from different vineyards that we destem and ferment on skins, resulting in a beautiful showcase of all the delicate flavors of white wine, but with more substance and texture.
Tasting Notes: Apricot, Haitian Orange, Marzipan
Pairings: Bleu cheese, Duck sausage, dried fruit
Alcohol: 12.1%

2020 Field Recordings Tang Sparkling White Wine Piquette...$15.99
Sparkling White Wine Piquette.
Light and refreshing, made with rehydrated skins from, well, Skins. Think wine tea. Literally, we have turned water into wine on this cellar experiment. Piquette was a way to meet the needs of the people during the late 1800s wine blight in France. By taking the pressed skins and rehydrating them with well water, you create a low-alcohol tea with all of the leftover flavor bound up in the dried skins. After repressing the skins 7 days later, we get a light and refreshing low alcohol elixir. We add a little of our finished table wine for acidity and stability and then bottle. The leftover sugars and native yeast then go to work giving the finished wine a light sparkle.
Tasting notes: Clementines, white jasmine tea, everything bagels

2020 Field Recordings Franc....$19.99
100% Cabernet Franc from Paso Robles
Red wine from hidden vineyards across Paso Robles. Aged for 6 months in neutral French Oak Barriques. A rustic punch of blueberries, black cherries and red currants with a a touch of mint and rosemary. Drink with friends after putting in a "hard day's work."
Sustainable * No additives * Minimal Sulfur native yeast * Vegan * Recyclable Packaging

Field Recordings Boxie Orange Wine...$33.99 / 3L
After years of experimenting with crafting orange wines for both our SKINS cuvee and our classic Ramato style Pinot Gris blends, we decided to craft the perfect orange wine to introduce the box wine drinker to the genre. A mix between classic California Chardonnay and orange wine techniques on Pinot Gris, Riesling and Albarino makes this the perfect wine to chill down and keep on tap in your refrigerator. *remove outer box to slap bag*
Chardonnay pressed after 24 hours of skin contact and fermented and aged in neutral French oak. Other varieties fermented on skins for 30 days and pressed to neutral barrels for 4 months of aging.
This isn't your mom's boxed wine. Each box contains 4 bottles of wine and will last in your fridge for up to 90 days. To enjoy, just pop the spout and pour. Bonus points if you slap the bag.
42% Chardonnay, 27% Melon, 20% Pinot Gris, 6% Semillon, 5% Xarel.lo

Nobletons Le Bon Liqueur d'Agrumes Orange Liqueur....$27.99

When we met with Demetrius Cain of Nobleton's Distilling House at his distillery about a month ago, he gave us a preview taste of this amazing new liqueur. It is a Satsuma Mandarin orange liqueur that is made from a very old family recipe. He was telling us about his "family crest" which you see on the label-- an alligator with a snake tail. Every one in attendance at the distillery was asking when can we get it! It arrived a few days ago, but just getting it posted now. He was telling how he stuffs the Satsuma Mandarin's in the barrel with the base spirit to age it all together! Make sure you check out the Le Bon Margarita recipe on the bottle!

High-Scoring Chenin Blanc!


2019 Famille Fournier Longchamps Chamboreau Savennieres...$34.99
Chamboureau is an organic Savennières cuvée produced on a very old plot, surrounding the Château of the same name, to the east of the town of Savennières. This regularly rewarded wine is characterized by its soft attack, its roundness and its aromatic persistence with notes of yellow fruits tending towards exotic fruits in older vintages.

With almost pungent minerality and gigantic concentration, this awesome Savennieres shows how great dry whites from the chenin blanc grape can be. On paper this must have plenty of acidity, but it’s so beautifully integrated that you don’t think about it. With some aeration this develops a wonderful nose of honeysuckle. Extremely long wet-stone finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
