2021 Tryzub Pinot Noir
100% of the Proceeds of This Wine Are Donated to World Central Kitchen to Benefit Ukrainian Refugees
The 2021 Tryzub Pinot Noir reunites the original team at Siduri Wines – co-founders Dianna Novy and Adam Lee along with their first winemaker, Scott Shapley, in a limited production Pinot Noir honoring and benefiting the refugees created by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
This Pinot Noir comes from three vineyards in the Central Coast – the Clos Pepe and Peake Ranch Vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills as well as the Boer Vineyard in the Chalone AVA of Monterey County. The wine combines the concentration and richness often found in Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noirs with some of the earthiness and mineral character found in Chalone area wines.
Why Ukraine? When Dianna and I first interviewed Scott Shapley for the Siduri job way back in 1998, he and his wife, Laura, were living in Kyiv. We spent many hours over harvest talking about his time in the Ukraine and his friends there. Many years later, we relived these conversations with a Ukrainian intern, Yaroslav Andriiets, who worked with us over a harvest season. Yaroslav went on to work at other wineries, including Shabo, one of Ukraine’s finest wineries. This combination of experiences resonated with us when Russia invaded Ukraine, and seeing the tragic human cost of this activity led us to work together once again to produce this very limited Pinot Noir.
