Details

Populis Red Les Lunes Living Wines Collective, organic Californian red wine, no added sulphur, fresh, fruity, Carignan blend. Made from mostly Carignan with some Nero d'Avola, Zinfandel and Tempranillo, this wine is a lovely example of natural wine from the states. It comes from the rather unfortunately named Poor Ranch, It is massale selection Carignane planted in 1948. The vineyard is located on Pinole soils, which are fairly deep gravelly, clay loams formed in alluvium from weathered sedimentary rock. These Pinole soils are particularly well suited to viticulture as their pH is quite high for CA and their depth and clay content lend to deeper and larger root systems, allowing for dry-farming. The Poor family has been homesteading and growing grapes at this location since the late 1800’s for four generations. These vines have been organically dry-farmed since their planting 67 years ago. No yeast or sulphur was added and the maturation took place over 7 months in old French barrels. This wine is dangerously drinkable! Delicious red fruit and animal aromas lead to a rich mid palate with a solid backbone of acid throughout.


Populis is the love child of three winemaking school friends, Diego Roig, Sam Baron, and Shaunt Oungoulian. Populis was born from the desire to make lighthearted, naturally made, extremely drinkable wines from exciting vineyard sites throughout California. They partner with farmers who grow organically, many of whom dry farm historic, old vine vineyards.
