Roughly 93% of Northern California Vineyard acreage is planted to only eight grape varieties- the remaining seven percent home to hundreds of lesser known varieties. Noting the dominance of the "Big Eight” (the eight grapes making up the 93% of acreage are: Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and French Colombard - a bulk varietal that nobody claims to use )a small posse of friends set out to help highlight that seven percent of acreage, the varieties that are grown there, the folks who make wine from these varieties, and all the supporting efforts from winemakers and farmers to shift these acreage percentages.
Seven % Solution headlines winemakers who champion these grapes, tend terroir, and produce wine that is slowly but surely shifting the perception of California wines toward varietal balance. We are proud to support these individuals, winemakers and farmers alike, and to help bring these solutions to a new cadre of wine connoisseur.
