MAKER SPOTLIGHT: Gearhead 3-PK

MAKER SPOTLIGHT: Gearhead 3-PK

Regular price $75

Our buddy Noel of Purity turned us on to his buddy, Craig West, who
makes wine at Noel’s Richmond facility for his upstart natural wine
label, Gearhead.  Craig was a fisherman and is still a baker for Acme
Bread by day, but when he met Noel and started helping him with
production, he decided that this was his calling and pivoted to wine
(on the side for now, but he's hoping to make the FT plunge in 2021).
Craig is scrappy like most of the new natty crew in California, and
searches high and low for organic fruit to purchase.  He makes tiny
lots (like 30-60 cases each) of wine, often co-fermented, all foot
tread, many with carbonic maceration, and all sans added sulfur.  Yet
they're all clean and supremely drinkable.  We're big fans, and invite
you to get to know the range of Craig's wines with this sample of
three different bottles, which will rotate according to inventory
(because he never makes more than 60 cases of any one wine).
