Well we all let out a soft moan on this one. Just all the perfect pieces coming together, confirming that Franc is indeed the Daddy of all wines. This is a rich wine experience that will spark joy with or without food. Here are all the lilacs and violets and rose petals with leather, strawberry and crushed gravel. With perfectly integrated tannins, this wine is awesome now or could definitely age for some years. 

 This wine enjoyed native fermentation and malolactic conversion. It was aged in neutral barrels with a kiss of new oak for 10 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, so vegan. 

75 cases produced. 

2021 Little x Little Cabernet Franc


I live right by Pickberry, it’s just down the road. It’s next to a vineyard we used to get Chardonnay from at Venge, so I passed by it all the time. I always thought, man, I’d love to get into that vineyard for Little x Little. I knew the vineyard manager and I called him to see if there was any way that we could get in. He said no. 

But then Will’s girlfriend was at a party, and the owners of the vineyard were there. She told them that we had been trying to get in there. They put us in touch again and we finally got to go out to the vineyard for a tour and a handshake. The owners are a retired couple. They live in Piedmont most of the time, and they have a tandem bike I see them riding all the time. It is very cute.”


We're on a break!

Don’t worry. We are coming back better than ever in 2024!

While Ownroot Collective  will continue to focus on winemaker side-projects, we will now offer 4 shipments per year, shipped automatically.

You can still shop for wine any time, and we will still offer lots of content, connection, and virtual tastings with winemakers. 

We hope you will join us for our newest adventure!
