Owned and farmed by Jake and Shauna Des Boignes, Hartwick Vineyard is located in Lodi, CA. The vineyard was established and planted by Shauna's grandparents. It's mostly planted to orange muscat, with some grenache, mouvedre, fiano, and greco on the periphery. 

The muscat grapes were split up into 3 lots for 3 different types of macerations. One was a carbonic maceration (some foot crushed grapes topped with uncrushed whole clusters) for 10 days with no cap management. The second was a fully destemmed maceration for 10 days with pumpovers daily. And the third was a partial destemmed/partial whole cluster maceration via the “hamburger method” (alternating layers of destemmed fruit and whole clusters). After 10 days, everything was pressed together and barreled down to neutral-oak barrels for 7 months. As always, no fining, filtration, or addition of SO2 in the making.
