Off Vintage is a new brand being launched by co-founders Anne Cassard and her husband, industry expert Michael Greeson. Off Vintage is a NYC-based organic wine project that represents authentic wines from heritage regions around the world. The team works with small communities of growers who farm organically and work by hand to bring you responsibly made wine for everyday life at an approachable price. This initial release comes from Sicily with fruit provided by Coopertiva Colomba Bianca.
The vineyards are located in west Sicily very near to de Bartoli where the land is exclusively dedicated to grapes, olive trees, and other exotic plantlife. It is all stainless steel fermented. The fruit character is ripe but tightly packed with medium acid intensity and body. The palate features stone fruits, citrus, minerality and a touch of sea salt.
