We practice 100% organic agriculture, just without the fancy label.
Sutcliffe wines contain no animal-based fining agents, meaning they’re 100% vegan friendly.
The addition of sulfites is essential in the winemaking process to prevent spoilage. Many U.S. wineries, however, add exorbitant amounts, causing more and more people to face adverse reactions. Sutcliffe Vineyards uses less than a third of the legal limit in the U.S., and around half that allowed in Europe.
100% French oak.
Our winemakers use neutral French oak barrels, ones that have been used over and over, to subtly enhance the wine’s complexity.
