Settembre Cellars was started by Blake & Tracy in 2007. The winery started in their home; a climate controlled two car garage full of Stainless Steel Tanks & French Oak Barrels. This beginning made perfect sense since production would begin years before any wine would be released for sale.
Yeast produce them and we add a small amount to our wines. In our experience premium cellar worthy wines require a small amount of sulfites (much less than produced by our bodies in a day or used on dried fruit). The amount required is exponentially dependent upon a wine’s pH and its state of evolution: we measure the wines, and sulfite levels achieved with our additions, to carefully minimize the amount we use.
Although we would purchase organic grapes in a heartbeat, to date, we have been unable to source them. Some of our growers treat their grapes organically and market their wines produced from the grapes as sustainable; since sustainable is ill-defined, we have chosen not to do so.
Yes, our winemaker & wines are suitable for vegetarians.
Some of our wines use an egg white product early in the process which should be gone by the time the wine is in bottle.
