Dirty & Rowdy Semillon


This exciting Californian winery was created by Hardy (“Dirty”) Wallace and Matt (“Rowdy”) Richardson. Interested in charted a new course for California wine, they choose not to work with popular grapes like Cabernet or Chardonnay, initially purchasing organically grown Mourvèdre, Sémillon, and Petite Sirah. In Hardy’s words – “We love Cru Beaujolais, and we had this curiosity: What would happen if we treat California Mourvèdre the same way?” The operation runs out of the old Copain facility in Santa Rosa, where nearly 20 other winemakers rent space.

This is how Hardy and Matt describe this wine – “Salt. Acid. Vibration. After four years, the return of our Skin and Concrete Egg Fermented Semillon holds nothing back. It is a tea party in the woods with fermented lemon and electric fennel. The skin contact rolls through the wine with fine tannins and a long textured finish. True to our Semillon form, this wine is beautifully cloudy. Decant 1 hour before serving. Pour at cellar temp.”
