"Sol-miner as in mining the "Sun" which in turn nourishes the soul. The name inspires us to discover and unearth the treasures in the soils of the California Central Coast. Our decisions have always been personal (not commercial) and involve what we call "conscious farming". As we learn about our little piece of earth and our place in it, the picture begins to widen. We have a feeling of connectedness as each trip around the sun gives us the chance to experience the magical process of exchange from the dirt, plants, fruit, wine, humans, sky, moon, sun and stars.
Our inspiration for this delicious red blend is a rare, ruby-red mineral called Rubellite. Changing slightly each vintage, it tends to be a blend of Syrah, Grenache with a dash of Riesling. Similar to a Rhone coferment of Viognier, Riesling is our Austrian inspired secret sauce that imparts some vibrant magic. Each vintage since 2012, we’ve found Rubellite to be a perfect blend of elements - floral, fruit and mineral. Reminiscent of a classic Rhone bistro wine, this “fresh” red lends to drinking early and often."- Solminer Winery
