Each year we eagerly await our small allocation of natural wines from Jason Charles and his Berkeley-based winery, Vinca Minor. Jason works with organically farmed vineyards throughout Northern California. The winery's motto, "Soil, grape and sun" speaks to Jason's journey through the wine industry that includes an initial harvest internship in Sonoma leading to a formative stop in Bordeaux before returning home. His wines are also incredibly reflective of Jason's experience as a photographer, combining an artist's eye and touch with a farming first ethos to craft wines of purity and complexity.
Jason is a rising star in the winemaking world and his small-lot, natural wines are absolutely stunning. There’s a reason why natural wines like Jason’s are making the rounds in America’s trendiest wine bars and restaurants: they’re incredibly food friendly, refreshingly low in alcohol, and offer up great value for the attention and care in farming.
