About this producer: "Winemaker Nathan Kandler stands firmly by his belief that the winemaker's ultimate mission is to translate the voice of the soil into the glass. But not all vineyards are created equal, and here enters Nathan's keen eye for finding the magical combination of variety, climate and soil. In California’s case, he believes the most special sites are often found outside of the iconic regions (Napa, Russian River, etc.). For Precedent, his first independent effort (his day job is as Associate Winemaker at Thomas Fogarty) he has found 3 unique vineyards, marked by old vines planted on rocky and well drained soils. Native yeasts, whole cluster fermentations, minimal sulphur and the judicious use of well seasoned French Oak are some of the techniques used."

The vineyards of Enlightenment Mountain are some of the oldest Chenin Blanc vineyards in California, dating back over 40 years! Planted within the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, an international Buddhist community in Mendocino, the vineyards are organically farmed on Redvine sandy, clay loam soil creating a mineral rich and deeply textured style of Chenin Blanc. Aromas & flavors of melon, yellow apples, fresh fuzzy peaches, chamomile, and touches of herbs make this rare gem rival wines you might associate with parts of the Loire Valley.
