HOFER - Cucamonga Grenache
Hofer Ranch is a special oasis that's about 45 miles to the east of LA. It's a Grenache-planted beach sand, own-rooted, head-trained vineyard that's been farmed organically since it was planted in the 1915. After prohibition, the ranch grew to 900 acres, and it sent fruit across the country in boxcars. All that remains today is 5 acres of sand wedged next to the Ontario airport & a field of industrial warehouses. The wine is punchy (like it looks and tastes like Hawaiian Punch), funky, & has loads of sun-kissed, juicy cherry fruit. Put a chill on it for extra fun.
