Conduit, Viognier, 2020
GOLD DUST VINEYARD | FAIR PLAY, EL DORADO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
Amy and Aaron Bryan met in the magic of the wine industry of San Francisco. Aaron is a winemaker and Amy is in wine sales. The two hit it off and brought Aaron’s super small wine production to the next level. While still incredibly small but ran by a power duo - a husband and wife, family-owned winery based out of Treasure Island. Fast forward to 2020 and a global pandemic, and the two, along with their 2-year-old, uprooted from their Mission District home to the hills of El Dorado County. They impressively took over a working winery with estate vineyards and turned it into Conduit’s and their new home. This is the reward; a 2020 Viognier born from their estate vineyard and a whole lot of grit. Wild yet clean, this is a natural wine made of heart, skill and hope.Full-bodied with just the right amount of creaminess. Notes of mango, apricot, white peach and cultured butter.
