The Neyers 2021 Sage Canyon Red is a blend of 45% Carignan, 25% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah. They retain 100% of the stems during the long skin contact fermentation – using exclusively wild, natural yeast – so the grapes are crushed entirely by foot, using a traditional French ‘Pigeage.’

There is no mechanical grape crushing. The new wine is then aged 1 year in 60-gallon French oak barrels. The 2020 may be the finest version to date.

About the Winery

 

Bruce and Barbara Neyers grew up together in Wilmington, DE and married while they were both undergraduate students at the University of Delaware. Bruce’s brief stint in the Army moved them to San Francisco in 1970 where Bruce became interested in wine.

Bruce worked at a French wine importing company in the city before moving to Mayacamas Winery in the Napa Valley in 1972. He spent a year in Germany as an apprentice winemaker in 1974, then 17 years at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In 1991 he left to begin Neyers Vineyards. At the time Bruce and Barbara began the winery, Bruce accepted a position as national sales manager for Berkeley importer Kermit Lynch. He held that job until his retirement in 2017, having grown the business many times over during his years there.
