Catch & Release Wines

Block Party Orange 2023

  • Organic

Deeply tropical and inherently aromatic, this blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer from northern California holds all the niceties of skin maceration without losing freshness and verve. The Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer were de-stemmed and fermented on the skins for 15 days, before being combined with the Riesling and aged sur lie. Equal parts fun, focused, and funky, this wine is not only a lovely aperitif, it also pairs well with everything from salads to spicy fare. The swiss army knife of skin contact wines, this one can do it all.

Catch & Release Wines

Catch & Release was started in 2019 by Beno and Monica Stewart. A husband-and-wife project turned business, Catch & Release serves as an outlet for creative expression, partnership, and an opportunity to support those who choose to farm in a conscious manner. The aim is to make serious wines without taking themselves too seriously. Raw materials are at the core of their philosophy. The Stewarts source fruit comes from select organic or biodynamically farmed vineyards, that range from deep Mendocino to the Santa Cruz Mountains. All wines are fermented natively, with no additives, and the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur.
