Fiddle Farm Winery

Fiddle Farm Winery In addition to being owner-winemakers, we are also professional Classical musicians; Henry Gonzalez, Double Bassist and wife, Billie Gonzalez, Violinist-Violist. Our winemaking focus is on small lots of Italian, Rhone, and Portuguese grapes, with emphasis on the unusual. The intense fruit and body of our wines derives from slower processing techniques: cold soaking the fruit prior to yeast additives, whole-berry fermentation, and gentle, long-duration extractions using basket presses we modify or construct. As each wine is ever-transforming during cellar ageing, we selectively bottle at various peaks to capture the unique varietals flavors and extraction characteristics. Artistic winemaking is a creation of infinite expression--as in music, we offer it from the heart--may you enjoy the performance!
