Omero Cellars winemaker Chad Stock has a strong winemaking philosophy: "Be humble, work with intent, keep it clean, no additives, let the wine speak for itself." In 2011, Chad started his own label, Minimus, as a series of one-off experiments, focusing on pushing the boundaries of winemaking and viticulture by exploring the possibilities of the diverse terrors of the region. With his Minimus-labelled wines, he tries to never make the same wine twice. Although avant-garde at heart, his experimentation is respectful, exploring traditional techniques rather than hi-tech spinning cones or chemical manipulations, as well as unusual grape varieties that we seldom see on our shores. Chad keeps track of each experiment in his journal, documenting every aspect of the process including conception, implementation, vineyard site selection, and much more. Ultimately, his goal is to use these experiments to grow as a winemaker, and to some day write a craft winemaking book about the experience. The dolcetto pét nat finds its origins in the Jubilee Vineyard, which Chad helped plant, even recommending dolcetto as a grape worth growing there. The pét nat is super fresh, having been fermented in a combination of oak and stainless steel, then bottled unfinished, and disgorged in February 2019. Aromas of fresh roses, wild raspberry, and savory lees make this a delicious quaffer with serious structural backbone (dolcetto has mouthwatering acidity!). Organically grown, low-intervention, vegan.
