Canepa Koch Wine Cellars strives to make wines with incredible depth, richness and length. We do this by implementing small lot winemaking techniques including small lot fermentations, berry sorting and minimal fermentation intervention. Basically, we let the vineyards we select speak for themselves and the end result is selected for “the dude”.
Most of our winemaking is done in one ton bins and barrels converted for fermentation. This "small lot" fermentation techniques gives our wines color, depth and beautiful texture. After fermentation, all of our wines proceed to barrel, where they go through Malo-lactic Fermentation, or "ML". Approximately 50% of our wines go through this process in new French Oak, which allows for early integration of wood and wine.
Thank you for supporting CKWC and “the dude”, we look forward to sharing our exceptional wines with you.
