    Details

    Founder Robert Jones purchased Firefall’s El Dorado County estate vineyards with the dream of honoring his grandfather’s winegrowing legacy. With a commitment to sustainable farming, the year-round nurturing of each vine culminates in hand harvested grapes that are fermented and aged with the lightest possible touch to create wines expressing a sense of place and distinction in the bottle.

    Appelation: Fair Play

    The property is located in the Fair Play AVA, five miles south of Somerset and above the middle fork of the Cosumnes River where the growing season is marked by warm, dry conditions. Prompted by elevations reaching 2400 feet, the cool overnight temperatures help form favorable grape acidity that provides artistic counterpoint to the layered fruit in the finished wines.

    The mountain vineyard offers a favorable package of crystal-clear skies above the fog line, clones and rootstock chosen for the site, and year-round hand cultivation that helps create an age-worthy collection of well-balanced wines. Vines are planted in well-drained granitic sandy-loam soils (Holland Series) where their struggle for survival creates the desirable conditions for growing outstanding wine grapes.

    In this video Mick of E16 Winery discusses food pairings with their Vivere:

    My name is Mick and I am here at E16 Winery in Fair Play California. That’s up here in El Dorado County in the area of Somerset. We are right at the Fairplay Corner.  The wines I’m showing you today which are coming from our own vineyard which is the baby Rattlesnake Vineyard up off of Grizzly Flat Road-  off Myers lane is the Vivere.  Vivere, tricks you into thinking its a sweet, but its not, so that makes it a very interesting wine.

    What I pair this with is maybe something light maybe a sweet chili mango sauce on anything really. And that way if a little bit of sweet gets into the food then you’ll end up tasting the fruit in the Vivere a little bit better.I’ve also had a glass of this with a peach cobbler at night, so peach cobbler with a little bit of orange sherbet on it was absolute fa ntastic. It also goes great with a fruit salad!  So if you have apples, pear, peaches, plums, nectarines, just the sweetness in the fruit perfectly balances with the wine. Plus, you get that wash of acids on the back end again.
