Hand harvested and organically grown; 100% whole cluster carbonic fermentation. Each varietal was fermented separately and picked at different times.
The Pinot Noir and the Gamay were both aged in our 3200 liter Austrian wood tanks. After 4 months the wines were racked and blended together then put back into tanks for an additional 3 months. A total Of 30ppm so2 was added prior to bottling without filtration in keeping with our minimalist (lo-fi) philosophy.

About the Winemaker
Lo-Fi is a partnership between two lifelong friends who believe in hand crafted honest wines that are made for every day drinking. Wines to be enjoyed not to be collected. Easy drinking lower alcohol wines made to pair well with all types of foods, from pizza to paté.
We believe in neutral barrels, native yeasts, little to no sulfur additions, and no adjustment of pH. We love whole cluster fermentation. We adore carbonic maceration . We embrace a nothing added, nothing taken away philosophy that gives birth to wines that are young, vibrant and alive.
But in all reality Lo-Fi is less about what it is and more about what it is not.
It is not over manipulated. It is not over extracted. It is not over ripe and it is not over priced.
Less is more.
Mike & Craig."
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!
