Carucci Wines is owned and operated by Eric and Lindsay Carucci, a self taught husband and wife team who has proved that bootstrapping a small winery operation really can be successful. They focus on Rhone varietals from California’s Central Coast and use natural wine practices such as native yeast fermentation, whole cluster fermentation and very limited amounts of new oak, which lead to nuanced and soulful interpretations of each individual vineyard site. Slide Hill Vineyard (the site for these Syrah beauties) is a 39 acre site, farmed Biodynamically, located directly across from the Alban Estate in Edna Valley (remember the Alban Petrina we featured in December?!). The vines grow in low pH gravelly clay loam and mudstone soils on extremely steep windy exposures. The vineyard is planted to Rhone and Spanish Varietals with a tiny bit of Pinot Noir.
