Winestyr Review

The Santa Cruz Mountains are quickly becoming a "hot spot" for cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with Jason Charles' example here showing why. Say what you will about to origins of minerality, just note that this wine has it all over the place and it makes a perfect pairing with likeminded foods (think shellfish, cheeses, garden fresh tomatoes).

Vinca Minor

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.
