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.

The varietal character of Grüner Veltliner is intense and highly unique. There is a range of fruit maturity with which this grape can be harvested to lend itself to an array of different styles. The resulting wines can vary from lean and herbal, to highly textured and exotic smelling, depending on the vineyards ability to ripen the fruit. Our site produces fruit that wants to be rich and exotic, producing significant texture while retaining focus and balance. We prefer this style for our own taste and encourage it by aging the wine in larger format oak puncheons for 10 months with full solids.

Our 2017 Chardonnay is a hollistic representation of our site through the lens of Chardonnay. This wine is a four-barrel blend of primarily high-acid non-dijon clones, with a smaller percentage of our fleshier dijon selections. After direct pressing, the juice was blended, and barreled down. They fermented and aged for 18 months in 50% first and second fill oak barrels and 50% neutral. The wine is laser focused on the palate with acid and salinity. The aromatics sing with fruit and oak working in balanced synergy. On our site, chardonnay yields one of the most expressive and impressive wines in any given vintage.

Johan Vineyards' first Ribolla release! Lower alc., higher energy. This wine is stunning, marked by fine tannin and lively aromatics evocative of cherry blossoms. We fermented our limited harvest on it's skins for 30 days, then barrel-aged for a year before bottling unfined or filtered. It is animated and exotic wine, which effortlessly captured our hearts.

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.

Piquette is a strange creature, an homage to the farm workers of France centuries ago. Workers would take care to not press grapes too hard, understanding that they could take the "waste" grape skins, add a bit of water, a splash of juice, and make a light, refreshing sparkling wine for themselves. Think Pét-Nat meets hard selzer. Our 2019 Piquette is made from skins of Melon de Bourgogne, Pinot Noir, and Gruner, resulting in a joyous sparkler that tastes like summer!

"All together now!" 2018 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.

This variety has become a key grape on our farm, highlighting the coastal influence we cherish in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA. 2016 was the first vintage in which we included whole cluster, at 33%, which emphasizes the savory characteristics, rustic structure, complexity, and provocative potential of Blaufrankisch, all while remaining honest and familiar.

Our Pinot Noir "Estate" is a unique representation of the soul of our vineyard in a given vintage. After vinification with native yeasts and minimal intervention, as well as a year of élevage in our cellar, we carefully select at least one barrel from every block on our farm. Ten individual clones, eighteen unique rootstock/scion combinations, and a range of aspects and soil structures provide us a diverse palette of expressions from our site, which we collage to create a wine that truly embodies a year of winegrowing.

The "Nils" bottling highlights power and concentration we find in certain blocks each vintage. 2015 had all of the qualities that predicate a perfect "Nils" vintage. With a higher proportion of destemmed berries (65%), the fruit sings with a bit more gusto, drawing attention to brooding dark fruit flavors and earth. We see more fruit tannin providing silky texture that will continue to soften with age.

"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!
