Spotlight Series: TWO SHEPHERDS

March 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Spinster Sisters are thrilled to announce the lineup for our Spring 2018 Spotlight Series! We’re having some friends over to pour for you this spring. Come meet, chat, and sip with a few of our favorite local winemakers! No tickets, no prix-fixe, and everything is poured by the glass and half-glass, so you can stop by for a drink and a snack, or go all out with a sampling of our small plates and pairings.

Mark these Friday nights on your calendar and give us a call for reservations!

Two Shepherds started originally as a garagiste, then a one man micro winery, committed to making old world style wines that express vintage and place. William often jokes there aren’t two shepherds, but actually half shepherd, as in addition to making a multitude of small lots, doing all production, he has a full time “day job” that funds the winery and its growth.

ownersIn 2015 William was joined by his partner Karen Daenen, a wine industry veteran, and head of consumer research for a multi-brand winery, as they moved into their own production facility in Windsor.

Two Shepherds specializes in Rhone varieties (e.g. Grenache Blanc, Mourvèdre, Roussanne,) from cool climate vineyards and unique plantings, made with minimal intervention. Use of native yeast, no additions other than minimal S02, neutral barrel fermentation and aging, whole cluster, and unfined, unfiltered production are core philosophies of Two Shepherds.logo

Two Shepherds was named as a Top Ten Hot Brand by Wine Business Monthly in 2012, and profiled in Jon Bonné’s book, The New California Wine: A Guide to the Producers and Wines Behind a Revolution in Taste. In 2017 Two Shepherds was also featured in a 66 page book by the San Francisco Chronicle as top 50 wineries to visit in Napa & Sonoma, as well as cover photo for Sonoma Syrah article, and dubbed 2017 San Francisco Chronicle: Rhone Style Rockstars

Come meet, chat, and sip with a bunch of our favorite local winemakers (and one brewer!) this spring and summer. There are no tickets, no prix-fixe, and everything is poured by the glass and half-glass, so you can stop by for a drink and a snack, or go all out with a sampling of our small plates and pairings.

We believe in our grapes and we don’t feel the need to inoculate our fermentation with selected yeast or feed them with inorganic nutrients or overprotect them with large amounts of sulfur dioxide. We also believe that blending enhances a wine’s balance and complexity which is why we planted grapes that have historically worked well together. This gives us the flexibility to adapt to a vintage’s characteristics and deliver compelling wines year after year.

We are certified organic, and we believe in keeping the microflora and microfauna in our soils as well as our beneficial insects alive and striving. Roots and leaves need allies; they cannot do it alone in a sustainable way. We are not just growing plants; we are also supporting a whole ecosystem, and this takes time, experience, and dedication.
