  • Suelo Farmers, Mendocino

    Suelo Farmers is a new project from Eric Prahl and Matt Osgood. Eric and Matt met working harvest at Rhys Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains in 2008. It was then that they first broached the subject of working together someday on their own label. Their careers took them to different places along the way – New Zealand, South Africa, Oregon, and Chile- as well as California- but they reconvened in 2011 to start Suelo with a plot of land they found in Mendocino’s Anderson Valley

    Suelo Farmers – Pinot Noir, Hacienda Secoya, Anderson Valley
    2011
    100% Pinot Noir
    Given the cooler temperatures in the spring of 2011, Matt and Eric took pre-emptive steps, working with the grower early on to ensure even ripening. Luckily, they were ready to harvest the morning before the heavy rain began in October. There is nothing like trial by fire and the debut effort is an outstanding value.

    Suelo Farmers – Pinot Noir, Deer Meadows, Anderson Valley
    2012
    100% Pinot Noir
    Deer Meadows is composed of 12 blocks – all of which have different microclimates, forcing a distinct picking dilemma for each winemaker. Suelo happened to be the second pick of the 2012 harvest.
