Martian Ranch - Biodynamic Wines from Santa Barbara

from 108.00

Martian Ranch is a biodynamically farmed 102-acre property in Los Alamos (Santa Ynez, California). It is the brainchild of Nan Helgeland and her husband Brian, both long-time Angelenos (Brian wrote the screenplays for L.A. Confidential and Mystic River). They combined their sons’ names, Martin and Ian, for the catchy brand name.

Martian Ranch has 20 acres of vines planted to 10 different grape varieties, each perfectly suited to the climate of the ranch. The vineyards were planted in 2008 under the guidance of biodynamic consultant Philippe Armenier. Martian Ranch is known for carefully farmed, vibrant natural wines, with Eric Bolton at the helm as winemaker.

Biodynamic principles, which take organic farming to the next level, strive to create a diversified and balanced ecosystem while focusing on the health and fertility of the soil. Lunar, solar, and cosmic rhythms are followed for all farming practices, which create an optimum environment for the vines. While these farming methods may be more labor intensive, the quality shows in each bottle, carefully crafted between the earth and the cosmos.

We are pleased to offer special pricing on the following Martian wines. These wines retail directly from the winery for $24/bottle, but we are able to offer them to you for just $18/bottle (plus a 10% discount on 12-bottle orders).

Grenache Blanc ‘Mothership’ 2015 - Aromas of kiwi, white pepper, delicate flowers, and citrus on the nose. Soft and silky on the palate with a zippy Meyer lemon finish begging for another sip. Pairing suggestions: ginger chicken; grilled shrimp; charred green beans; pan-seared white fish.

Grenache Noir ‘Ground Control’ 2014 - Aromas of cherry, pie crust and a hint of cumin. Flavors of cherry, blackberry and chocolate fill the mouth with a finish of black tea with an accent of juniper and orange peel. Pairing suggestions: grilled steak or mushrooms.
