Want to see Pax Mahle’s eggs?

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 | Posted by

In a blog post today, Dr. Vino (aka Tyler Colman) writes about the strange egg-shaped concrete vessels West County’s Pax Mahle is using to ferment the wine for his Wind Gap label.

Mahle makes about 3,000 cases of cool weather wines from his Graton headquarters, doing the fermentation in the kind of clay vessels first made popular in the former Soviet republic of Georgia. (Read Alice Feiring’s post in The Daily Beast for background on the technique.)

Go to Dr. Vino to see photos of “Pax Mahle’s enormous eggs.” Or call Mahle at 887-9100 to set up a tasting tour of your own.
