Small-production, natural-driven winemaking with happy palates in mind. Fun and flavorful, for everyday adventures or total relaxation. Our first vintage highlights this skin-contact pinot gris with grapes from the Holmes Gap Vineyard nestled in the Van Duzer Corridor in the Willamette Valley. The name, Sunshine Effect, originates from the daily moving of the fermenter outside into the sun to kick off fermentation. Spontaeous yeast fermentation, no additives, unfiltered and unfined, this is a wine that flirts with good times and would always wear twirly dresses if it was a human. Cheers!
In 2021, we were able to add a couple of new wines to the lineup! In addition to the Sunshine Effect, we are proud to introduce the "Sunrise Effect", a 12-day, skin-contact Auxerrois from Zenith Vineyard that showcases apricot, and green tea with stoney minerality, perfect for a variety of foods and warm days. Along with that comes the "Breakfast Wine", a carbonic Tinta Cao from Havlin Vineyard with bright fruit, zesty acidity and a spicy finish.
