The Anarchists have arrived… But, our wine revolution has room for more. Join us to celebrate the Charlottesville launch of the Anarchist Wine Co on Tuesday, May 7th from 5p until 7p.
Instead of raising fists, we’ll raise glasses to toast the release of our 2017 Anarchist Proprietary White Blend, while subverting the dominant pink paradigm with our 2018 Rosé Against the Machine and unleashing the Kracken with our lush 2013 Conspiracy Theory Proprietary Red Blend and 98 point 2013 Philosopher Cabernet Sauvignon. (If Philip Von Burg has his way, he’ll offer sneak peaks of wines which are still under lock and key.)
Anarchist Wine Co. With our unique approach to crafting custom wines at The Wine Foundry, we were committed to having our new brand reflect something new and fresh as well. We initially looked toward disruptors and free thinkers who shape the way we think and experience the world.
We know the name “Anarchist” can have negative connotations. That’s not where we draw inspiration. Instead we embrace individuals and events that move and shape the trajectory of human history. Following suit, for the Anarchist, we’ve opted to step away from tradition to explore new varietal combinations. For example, we loved the clarity of Chenin Blanc, but wanted to deliver additional depth and complexity to the nose. Toward that end, for our inaugural vintage of The Anarchist we had the idea of co-fermenting Chenin Blanc with Gewurztramier and Riesling in stainless steel and inhibiting malolactic conversion. From there, the winemaking team continued to tinker and tweak. The manifesto has now grown to 9 wines.
