Darek Trowbridge has been at this for a while-- one of the natural wine pioneers in the Russian River Valley, his own history among the vines goes back over a century. The man who taught Darek how to tend to vines was his grandfather, none other than Leno Martinelli of famed winery/cider estate Martinelli. In 2011, Charm was 100% Alicante Bouschet that spent 48 months on the lees before spending 4 more years in bottle. Don't let it's dark color fool you-- it drinks as fresh as any Loire valley Cab Franc so pop it in the fridge and serve it up with pizza.
