Tempranillo is a Spanish varietal that is named for the diminutive of temprano, or early, in reference to its early ripening. Our biodynamic Tempranillo opens with aromas of violets and cassis. The smooth, elegant palate delivers flavors of elderberry, allspice, and a hint of sandalwood. It pairs well with tortilla española or a grilled rack of lamb.

Frey Vineyard’s emphasis is on producing organic and biodynamic wine of the highest quality while caring for planet and palate alike. They have always been family-owned and operated, and today a third generation helps with the production of fine organic wines in a tradition of sustainability started 30 years ago.
Their vineyards and winery are nestled on the slopes of the Redwood Valley A.V.A. (American Viticultural Area) in Mendocino County, California, at the headwaters of the Russian River. All of their wines are made with no added sulfites. Their innovative winemaking techniques compensate for the lack of this synthetic preservative (which can induce headaches, sniffles, and other allergic reactions in some people). The wine is therefore free to reveal its delicate and true flavors.
