Fait Main 'Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is one of the heritage vineyards owned and farmed by the Beckstoffer family and has been planted to vineyard for over 150 years. The Beckstoffers and Fait Main’s vintner/winemaker Benoit Touqette have collaborated over the years to dial in the farming of his portion including the use of shade cloth late in the season. The soft filtered light in the heat of summer helps maintain even ripening, allowing approachability without sacrificing age worthiness in the finished wine. The wines grown from this rocky site are structured and masculine; they are left bank-inspired, but also with classic Beckstoffer Las Piedras dark blue and black fruit tones with underlying notes of crushed rock. "A gorgeously sweet nose of blackcurrants, dried flowers, Asian spice, and loamy earth and chocolate emerges from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard. Deeply concentrated, with a light, elegant texture, beautiful tannins, and a great finish, this stunning wine is already beautiful but will shine for 15 years or more." - Jeb Dunnuck.

Fait Main 'Penhoet Toyon Farm' Chardonnay 2018
200 cases were produced of this gorgeous Chardonnay from the secluded Toyan Farm in Carneros. This 2018 release is comprised of 25-year old, Old Wente clone which allows Benoit to create a French-driven, California expression of this special Chardonnay. It is supple and elegant with graceful minerality and round, rich fruit notes of meyer lemon, crushed rocks with pear and baking spiced aromas. Benoit aged the wine in concrete egg fermenters along with partial malolactic fermentation in new French oak which provides additional layers of complexity and silken texture in the glass.

Fait Main 'Fait Main 'McMahon Fulldraw Vineyard' GSM Red 2018
The 2018 Fulldraw Vineyard GSM Red originates in the windswept Templeton Gap area of Paso Robles. In collaboration with owners Connor & Rebecca McMahon, their site looks and feels like a moonscape with pure white calcareous limestone slopes. Massive diurnal temperature shifts in this part of Paso lets grapes develop sugar and phenolics without losing their freshness. This vintage is idyllic in every way, with vibrant notes of black raspberry, cassis, toasted spices, and violet, layers into a full bodied Grenache marked by its mid-palate depth and extraordinary finesse. GSM aka Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre is comprised of 66% Grenache, 17% Syrah and 17% Mourvedre. 50 cases were produced of this limited production Red.

Benoit Touquette grew up one of Burgundy's main cities, Lyon, before moving to Bordeaux to attend graduate school. He worked the mobile bottling lines to pay for schooling and it was while doing this that he got to see and feel the infectious passion of the winemakers he met. He quickly switched his focus to oenology and completed two degrees before moving to Napa Valley to intern with renowned winemaker Andy Erickson (formerly of Screaming Eagle, Staglin and now Dalla Valle, Favia and Marciano) before venturing on his own to become winemaker at Realm Cellars and begin his own wine brand, Fait Main and Teeter Totter. Benoit's style of wines that he produces are opulent and bold, with a focus geared towards showing each vineyard's potential
