AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: FOLKTALE
And for the most surprising winery in the AVA, I give you Folktale. Built into a faux-chateau less than an hour from Big Sur, the cynic in me thought, oh no, am I driving into a tourist trap? as I rolled past the front gate. Luckily, winemaker David Baird is using the Disneyland-esque backdrop to create the area's most excitingly offbeat and accessible wines. Baird makes a wide range so we've selected two highlights. The Diver is a charmingly bright Charmat-method field blend. Grenache Blanc, Albarino, and a laundry list of aromatic grapes bounce brisk lemon out of the glass. While this year's bottling was made conventionally, next year's will quite literally be a diver- made in a Pet Nat style, it's not available yet because the undisgorged bottles are ageing at the bottom of Monterrey Bay. The Mistral is a rare single vineyard Grenache. It's opulently fruity with whiffs of smoked pepper and smooth tannin- just one more fun wine that you rarely see from California's cool coastal areas.
