"Schioppettino (also called Ribolla Nera) originates in the Friuli region of Italy and Slovenia. We have one of the only plantings in California. An ancient grape, Schioppettino, which means “gunshot,” was first mentioned in print for wedding ceremonies in 1282. It is distantly related to Syrah and Pinot noir. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, then fermented in very small stainless-steel tanks. We did a
mixture of manual punch downs and pump-overs. The tiny lot of wine fit into only two puncheons. We used the larger format puncheons instead of normal barrels to slow down the aging and preserve the aromatics. The pH is 3.72, the TA is 5.1 g/l, and the alcohol is only 11.0 %. 128 cases produced. The Schioppettino has fascinating flavors of cedar, black pepper, violets, and raspberry. It is incredibly fresh tasting, with a stony minerality underlying the cooling flavors. It has naturally low alcohol and a very refreshing and clean finish."


Vineyard About

The Schioppettino represents two rows in  the Matthiasson home vineyard in the Western Oak Knoll area of Napa Valley. The vines were planted in 1996. We grafted the budwood onto the mature Merlot vines in 2010. CCOF certified organic, with fruit trees at the ends of the rows and flowering bushes throughout for “good bug” habitat, the vines are serenaded throughout the season by kids, coyotes, owls, bees, and the occasional roar of one of our old tractors.


Shipping Details

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!
