Barter and Trade Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Producer: Field Recordings
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Columbia Valley, Washington
Barter and Trade is a collaborative effort between Paso Robles winemaker Andrew Jones of Field Recordings and Washington-based Sauvignon Blanc growers. In an effort to bring the limelight to the under-sung region, Jones crafts single-varietal (and often) single vineyard expression of familiar grapes. The goal is to showcase the diversity of varietal and site expression.
Field Recordings is winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he’s all about finding those underdogs with untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.
