One of our most popular wines! This blend of Tempranillo, Fiano, and Aglianico is bright, balanced and approachable. It pairs with an array of dishes from wood-fired beef tenderloin with Gorgonzola to simply delicious BBQ chicken and tri-tip. Or simply enjoy it à la carte on the patio. The wine's name honors the visionary pioneers who built the flumes, canals and ditches to bring water to the goldfields and thus who sold it by the miner's inch. To this day, that same system still supplies not only our vineyards but many parts of the Sierra Foothills thus making it a part of this wine.
