Johan Vineyards - All Ewe Need is Love 2020
The “All Ewe Need Is Love” red blend is a wine that was originally introduced to the Johan line-up in 2018 to act as a “fundraiser” to help us budget for our first starter flock of sheep. We calculated that if we could sell 56 cases of the 2018 “sheep wine”, as our team affectionately calls it, we would be able to purchase our first 10 sheep and the infrastructure needed to introduce them. A few vintages later, the wine’s profits are still directed to our animal husbandry and organic vegetable garden projects, as we have new goals and plans to expand every year. The 2020 blend is comprised of the three Austrian varieties we have growing at Johan, with approximately 55% Blaufränkisch, 32% St. Laurent, and 13% Zweigelt. This light-bodied red blend is bright, juicy, and oh-so-quaffable!
