Dolce and Sofia, our affable miniature Sicilian donkeys inspired this wine. The 5 days of skin contact impart a copper hue, reminiscent of Italian Ramato. The taste is uniquely its own, landing somewhere between an orange wine and a rosé.  Fun and fresh, with lingering savory notes. A wine as unique as our Dolce. Hee Haw! 12.2 alc, 400 cases crafted.

Two Shepherds is the labor of passion founded by William Allen, well known Rhône enthusiast and former wine  blogger.  William was a garagiste for years before moving into commercial production in 2010.

Two Shepherds started as a one-person micro winery in 2010. In 2015, William was joined by his partner Karen Daenen, a wine industry veteran, and head of consumer research for a multi-brand winery, as they moved into their own production facility in Windsor.

William focuses on day-to-day wine making while Karen, the Chief Shepherdess, runs foot stomping, blending trials, marketing, accounting, design and other key elements to the business.
