Winery notes: "Our 2021 Tears of Vulcan continues our tradition of bright, floral, citrusy, textural, skin contact orange wine. Composed of fruit from two organically farmed vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, this wine represents both the limitless characteristics of Viognier, Pinot Gris, and Muscat, and the terroir of a specific place, at a specific time. This vintage, the fruit sat on its skins for 24 days resulting in a deep rose gold color, firm tannins, juicy fruit and and a hit of umami. This wine elicits endless depth and character, unfolding with time and air. Blood orange, fresh grapefruit and grapefruit pith, ginger and juicy cider apples are complimented by notes of fennel, dried herbs and a touch of white pepper."

About the Winemaker
Founded by winemaker and owner Brianne Day in the 2012 vintage, Day Wines is a producer of boutique, artisanal bottlings made from fruit sourced exclusively from a small group of Oregon growers who utilize Biodynamic, Organic and/or Sustainable vineyard practices. To create distinct expressions of our corner of the world, we focus on fruit harvested from the esteemed Willamette Valley to exotic varietals found in Southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley AVA.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
