Personality: Candied raspberries, Bonne Maman Mixed Fruit preserves, lavender and sage. Bubbly and easygoing. Andrew recommends it with Hawaiian pizza, Santa Maria tri-tip and spicy tuna hand rolls.

Making of: The grape pomace was steeped for 3 to 7 days depending on the variety and then pressed and spontaneously fermented. Blended with Albariño wine for acidity (hence the 12% ABV, unusual for a piquette) and bottled under crown cap while still going to get a gentle fizz.

Winemaker's Note: “This piquette came about as a community effort: We gathered pomace from 9 other wineries in the Paso Robles area and brought it all back to Tin City to make this wine. All proceeds will go toward a scholarship fund that we’ve set up: We will be offering $5,000 scholarships to workers in the vineyard, winery, restaurant and hospitality industries to go toward extended education, starting with the 2021 school year. It’s also fun to be introducing our friends from other Paso Roble wineries to the concept of Piquette, oftentimes new to them,”
