Field Recordings Domo Arigato

Regular price $27.00

Winemaker: Andrew Jones

Appellation: Central Coast, California

Grape Varieties: Pinot Gris

This is a Ramato-style wine made from skin-contact Pinot Gris (hence the name). This is a blend of three vineyards from three distinct areas of the Central Coast: Paso Robles, Santa Barbara Highland, and the Edna Valley. This rosé lookalike harkens back to an older style of winemaking, where allowing the skins of the white grapes to remain in contact with the juice lends the wine body and texture while also bringing out a juicier richness. Notes of white peach and pear mingle with subtle notes of spice in a zesty and refreshing way.

Winemaker Andrew Jones has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. He strives for unique wines loaded with personality and a one-of-a-kind experience.

Field Recordings is winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Our wines are all about the flavor — with none of the pretension.

Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he’s all about finding those underdogs with untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.

We offer single-vineyard wines with a sense of place and personality, as well as delightful blends under our Wonderwall and Fiction projects. These bottles are good enough to save for a special occasion … but we’re a laidback crew, so don’t feel bad about putting one back on a Tuesday night.
