Winery Practices

Barrel with bung

FRES.CO wine is made with minimal additives and maximum transparency. The aim is to make fresh tasting wine, support our community, and drawdown carbon emissions. To accomplish this we work with neighbors, minimize waste, and emphasize sustainable agriculture. In the cellar, we make wine without commercial inputs. Generally we add only a small dose of SO2 (generally 30 ppm, solely at bottling). We ferment with native yeast and neutral barrels, and use both scientific and ancient techniques to eliminate additions. FRES.CO's goal is to produce natural wines that are delicious and true to site while using progressive business practices to incentivize positive change.
