From the winemakers, "L’Amalgame’ is a collaborative effort between North American Press and The 280 Project. This remarkable story begins at the Filoli Historic House within the San Francisco Bay AVA where a small museum vineyard is planted to over 100 different heritage American hybrid grape varieties. Due to the nature of this novel vineyard, there is no sampling, analysis or data collection involved. Rather, a diverse group from The 280 Project and a desire to make a courageous wine from an equally diverse collection of heirloom grapes. A truly transformative wine expression."

About The 280 Project: "In 2019, Christopher and Jannea founded The Two Eighty Project to increase equity and diversity within the wine industry — and access to the spaces occupied by it. They began their work at Alemany Farms, a public park in San Francisco, originally dedicated to giving inner-city individuals the space to practice urban community gardening. As the nature of the space, industry, and city have grown increasingly exclusive, it’s become increasingly urgent to reclaim and revitalize them for the local community.

The Two Eighty Project is dedicated to building a sustainable food and wine community that nourishes every member of the local economy and ecosystem."

This is a super special wine!! Notes of juicy fruit snacks!
