Naidu 2020 'Kick Ranch' Viognier, Fountain Grove District, Sonoma, CA, USA

Raghni Naidu founded Naidu Wines to create wines that are always limited production, high quality and with a focus on terroir. Raghni's has proudly put her family's name on the bottle as a reflection of her belief in the freedom to create one’s own path by following your dreams and through hard work, perseverance & grit; while remembering to always pay it forward. In her words, "I am an immigrant woman carving a space within this traditionalistic industry, because despite what others may say; I belong." We love that despite what anyone might have told her, Raghni is going for it, and these wines reflect her deep passion! 

Winemaker(s): Raghni Naidu & Matt Duffy

Farming: Sustainable

Variety: Viognier

Terroir / Soil: Kick Ranch Vineyard in the Fountain Grove District of Sonoma County. Hillside vines, planted on the Sonoma-side slopes of Spring Mountain. The Viognier is found on the steeper, rocky volcanic slopes of Kick Ranch, with colling winds coming from the Petaluma Gap.

Vinification: Picked slightly earlier to preserve acidity, the Viognier is barrel fermented on its lees, without malolactic fermentation. Bottled unfiltered. 50 cases made.
