Fiction is a vintage that changes by the year. Crafted from sustainably grown grapes in minute quantities from plots throughout Paso Robles, Fiction showcases the expansion of Californian personality on the wings of exploratory diversity. Despite its bold demeanor, Fiction keeps to all the statutes of sustainable winemaking, using minimal sulfites and tending the grapes as naturally as possible.
