Louisa Sawyer-Lindquist started her label Verdad in 2000, focusing on Grenache grape variaties. Verdad makes a dry Grenache based Rosé, a Santa Ynez Valley Tempranillo as well as a Demeter certified biodynamic Albariño and Tempranillo from the Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard.
Verdad is devoted to making Spanish grape varietal wines that express true varietal character as well as the vineyard’s terroir. The grapes are sourced from organic and biodynamic vineyards and are minimally processed in the cellar. The philosophy behind the wine-making is to grow the best fruit possible, pick at optimum balance and let the wines reflect what the vineyards have created.
