In 2011 less than half of one percent, or 0.0038, of California's red grape tonnage was Sangiovese, sandwiched between Mission and Carnelian. That was a surprise; we thought Mission was displaced 150 years ago when vitus vinifera arrived in California. Today only about two-thirds of the state's small Sangiovese crop was estate grown, like ours, with wineries purchasing the rest from independent growers. And only 3% of the statewide Sangiovese total came from Napa Valley, less than Napa's overall 4% average. It's a wonder you can find any to drink.
