Sans Liege founder and winemaker Curt Schalchlin, who also produces wine under the Groundwork label, balances a reverence for the traditions of the Rhône Valley with the freedom of making wine in California’s Central Coast. The 2018 vintage of “The Offering” is 39% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and 25% Mourvèdre. With a nod to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Curt ably pulls this one off. It’s no wonder that his wines are so popular around here.
