Think you know Valise? Pack your bags, this is a slightly different story. It begins on California’s Central Coast with Viognier grapes hand-selected by Bruery Terreux Production Manager, Jeremy Grinkey. The harvested Viognier grapes were pressed nearby with our friends at Sans Liege. We then transported the juice to Bruery Terreux, blended it with a specially brewed sour blonde wort and fermented 100% of the blend in French oak barrels. Unlike the previously released Valise, this barrel-fermented creation kept the grape skins on for a day, was aged sur lei and utilized the battonage method, where the barrels are taken down and stirred once a month. After months of maturation, Barrel-aged Valise emerges with a warm, deep and woody wine-like character, highlighted by expressive tart notes and gripping floral and stone fruit flavors. We hope you enjoy this trip that challenges the senses and pushes boundaries on both the wine and beer landscape.
