This was FӒSI’s first vintage.

This limited available wine is a wonderful example of what to expect from this winemaker if you can allow it to lay-down for a few years before drinking.  Well rounded, supple, yet a hearty wine. Great fruit, great oak - what a wonderful surprise.

This 42-acre vineyard is the culmination of a very simple concept: create an organically certified vineyard that marries the long traditions of wine grape growing with being good stewards of the land.  Based on my last visit, they have done an excellent job in their endeavors.  

Fäsi Estate wines have won numerous national awards including, “The Ten Best Wines of 2015” from Forbes for their 2010 Fäsi Crest Syrah, Private Reserve and a double gold medal from Appellation America for their 2006 Fäsi Crest Private Reserve.
