Description: Founded in 1980, Gemtree is run by Melissa and Mike Brown, husband and wife, with her working the vines and him in the cellar, and they have built a farm that is essentially a self-sustaining biosphere. Weeding and fertilization is done by a flock of sheep, and they use solar energy and recycled good wherever possible. This velvety red comes from high-altitudes, preserving acidity to support ripe red fruit and spicy notes of black pepper and woodsmoke.
