Winemaker Tasting with Alex Pomerantz of Subject to Change

Subject To Change is an exciting new project launched by four friends, including Alex Pomerantz (formerly of Sonoma’s Kivelstadt Cellars) and Brad Friedman (formerly assistant winemaker at Big Basin in the Santa Cruz Mountains). They produce natural wines with a focus on organically- and biodynamically-farmed single vineyard sites, partnering with California growers they admire. Subject to Change made quite a splash at the natural wine fair Brumaire a few months ago, and they’re currently scouting for an East Bay production facility. We predict they’re going to find an enthusiastic audience in the Bay Area--so come meet them, taste the wines, and count yourself an early adopter!

All the wines in the lineup are sourced from exceptional Mendocino vineyards. The Feliz Creek Sauvignon Blanc is made from the fruit of 40 year-old dry farmed vines and inspired by the herbaceous, mineral-driven Sauvignon Blancs of the Loire Valley. Next is the SunHawk Farms Field Blend Red, a co-fermented field blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Roussanne, Zinfandel, Cabernet, Viognier, Picpoul Blanc and Muscat that makes for a quaffable chilled super-light red. Last, a Carignane from the 100 year-old vines at Feliz Creek, full of purple fruit and spice with a cheerfully rustic personality.
