Wind Gap is a project by Pax and Pam Mahle. This small winery is focused on producing honest, authentic and compelling wines from special vineyard sites. They source from vineyards throughout California. Many of their vineyards are planted along or are directly influenced by one wind gap or another. These geological breaks in the coastal hills funnel wind inland and strongly influence the growing and ripening of their grapes. They harvest low-yields, ferment with natural yeasts and partially with stems on certain varieties. Pump-over and pump-downs are done manually (if ever) and are designed to extract a balance of tannins and fruit. Fermentation and aging occurs in a selected combination of concrete, stainless steel, and old neutral French oak.
