This wine was created for their Foxen Heritage Collection project that celebrates Foxen co-founders’, Dick Dore and Bill Wathen’s, original 1989 plantings at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic. The Heritage Collection is sourced from Foxen’s old-vines, dry farmed and sustainably grown grapes in our upper Tinaquaic Vineyard and deserves to be celebrated. This selection of wine is not only extremely limited in production, it also highlights the unique taste profiles and complexities that only these old vines can provide.
