About This Item

Tom Stolpman founded Stolpman Vineyards over 20 years ago with the intent of farming the undiscovered site but selling the grapes to other producers. His son, Pete, took over the family business in 2009 and switched the focus to wine production of his own.  When he married is wife, Jessica, in 2013, she came on board to help manage the wholesale market.  Both long-time lovers of wine, the couple met while working at a California wine distributor.  As their family grows to include two young sons, August and Otto, Jessica hopes to also expand to her own wine project.

 

Love You Bunches is a part of their So Fresh line of wines.  All of the wines in this line are fermented using carbonic maceration.  Typically used in the wines of Beaujolais, this process involves grapes beginning to ferment as whole grapes without being crushed.  The process creates wines that are uniquely bright, fresh, and fruity.  2019 had no harvest-time heat spikes so this vintage of Love You Bunches Sangiovese has particularly high acid.  Think of it almost like a dark rosé and put it in the fridge to get a solid chill before enjoying at your next summer barbecue.
