Pinot Noir 'Moonshine Ranch', Martinelli

Back during prohibition the owners of this property used to run ‘shine on this ranch, in the existing barn. The owner used to sneak out in the middle of the night, while his wife slept to tend to the still. The wife got suspicious and thought it was another woman, so she hired a private detective. When the detective found out he was running ‘shine, had the owner arrested and thrown in jail. The barn still stands on the property today.
