Demeter-Certified, Estate Grown Fruit

Johan Vineyards is a certified-Biodynamic estate vineyard and winery, located in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA. As winegrowers, we have a very intimate connection to our site. With each growing season, we mature and evolve with the farm and find ourselves continually refining our approach in order to develop a more honest and true farm individuality. Our winegrowing is guided by the objective to authentically interpret our farm’s identity through the creation of wine. We believe the sense of place, the essence of our farm, is best expressed through our deep commitment to Biodynamic farming practices, native-yeast fermentation, and minimal intervention in the cellar.

Pétillant Naturel is a method of producing sparkling wine, also referred to as “Methode Ancestrale”, where the carbonation occurs from bottling the wine during the primary, alcoholic fermentation – in order to capture the carbon dioxide that is being naturally released. This sparkling rosé was made from all estate-grown, Demeter certified Biodynamic® Pinot Noir grapes. We farm Block 3, a small northwest facing section of the vineyard planted to clone 667, specifically for this wine.  We strive to achieve ripe fruit flavors and higher acidity, for a fresh and juicy expression of Pinot Noir. After 24 hours of skin contact, the grapes were pressed and fermented in a stainless steel tank before it was bottled at the tail end of its primary fermentation. Bottled unfiltered and contains lees – pour off slowly or invert to evenly distribute.

For the Pinot Gris "Drueskall," we ferment our fruit in multiple lots, utilizing whole berry fermentation, whole cluster fermentation, and carbonic maceration in different proportions depending on the vintage. The wine is in contact with the skins between 21 and 45 days, before barreling down for ~18 months. This multi-lot approach to "orange" Pinot Gris results in a wine with an assertive structure of tannin and acid, with detailed and exotic aromatics.

The objective of our Pinot Noir is to create a bottling that most accurately represents our sense of place in a given vintage. We carefully select parcels of fruit from every rootstock/scion combination, aspect, vine age, and soil profile, creating a collage of the diverse expressions of our vineyard through the lens of Pinot Noir. The 2017 included 57% whole cluster and after fermenting using native yeasts, spent 10 months in 28% new wood, with the remainder completing elevage in neutral french oak.

Like Pinot Noir, the Blaufränkisch grape has a wonderful transparency and is highly sensitive to its environment.  The goal is to find a consistency in expression of terroir over multiple grape varieties from our site.  Our Estate Blaufränkisch shows a likeness to the sanguine and iron minerality that defines our Pinot Noir but with more nervy acidity and a darker, deeper fruit profile.

The Nils bottling was created out of an interest to capture a specific expression from our estate.  This barrel selection focuses on highlighting those barrels that exude characteristics of power and weight, leading to a more masculine expression of Pinot Noir from our site.  The goal is to accentuate dark fruit and earthy base notes in the Nils bottling.  With the Nils we seek power and elegance, through balance and complexity.

"Three Barrel" is a blend of barrels that we find to be wildly expressive, exotic, and intriguing in each vintage. The selections are distinct each year, however we always aim for that same objective. Expect complex perfume and incense aromatics matched by tense acid and firm tannin on the palette. Built to age 12+ years, this wine will continue to stun so long as you keep yourself from drinking it!

"All together now!" 2019 Jazzy Juice is a wild experiment made of Pinot Noir and a small percent of Pinot Gris. We filled a fermenter partially with Pinot Noir clusters and poured freshly pressed juice, attempting what may be called a "reverse saignee." The resulting wine is a bright, juicy, and chillable red. Refreshing acidity is the star of the show, complimented by a small amount of phenolics from the smaller proportion of skins.

Melon de Bourgogne is a grape variety most notably planted in the Loire region in France.  Our estate-grown Melon grapes were destemmed and left to soak on the skins for 36 hours before pressing.  Fermented by native yeasts in neutral barrels, the wine aged “sur lie” for 10 months before heading to bottle.

2018 "All Ewe Need Is Love," is a one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir release for a special cause. We created this special release of Pinot Noir as a way to raise money for our continued efforts to nurture our site and diversify our farm system. Every penny from the sales of this wine will go towards the development of infrastructure for our sheep and poultry project, as well as the improvement and scaling of our Farm Share, so we can offer the experience to more of our community in the future. It is a youthful and vibrant bottling of Pinot Noir, something of a rarity at Johan, which reminds us that Pinot Noir can be as whimsical and fun as the label suggests.

Our take on Pinot Noir Rosé. Not your usual pink wine. Our macerated 667 clone Pinot Noir is barrel fermented with native yeasts for just shy of a year, in pursuit of depth and weight. Handled with the same care as our traditional Pinot Noir, this wine will challenge your expectations of rosé.
