Item Description
Over the years, Freese and Breakneck Creek have often been discussed comparatively. Fascination has built the framework of these conversations due to their close proximity to one another yet contrasting styles in the glass. If we consider Breakneck to be akin to the seashore of Maine with its salty coastal air and cool, fresh breezes, and Freese to evoke the warm, sun-drenched shorelines of the Gulf of Mexico, we can paint a better picture of the differences between these two wines and their respective sites.

The gentle slopes of Freese Vineyard put forth a more relaxed and less extreme ascent than Breakneck. Freese respects and endures the cool-climate it calls home, while yearning for sandy beaches and tropical growth. It works at an unhurried pace, allowing indulgence and complete satisfaction in its ripe, exotic fruits.
About Forge Cellars
We are a small, artisanal producer focusing entirely on Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are made up of three like-minded and passionate friends--French Winemaker-Grower, Louis Barruol of Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas and Finger Lakes partners Justin Boyette (Winemaker) and Richard Rainey (Vineyards, General Manager).

We strive to grow grapes and handcraft wines of interest and value that perfectly balance minerality, aromatics and fruit to reflect our exceptional Finger Lakes terroir. Each vintage is viewed as an opportunity to express our region - to reflect its soils, its cool climate and its hillside lake terroirs.

Our choices in the cellar guard the purity of our vineyards. Simply put, we make wine in the traditional, handcrafted manner. We harvest by hand. We sort by hand. We load the grapes into the press by hand. We shovel the vats out by hand. We employ spontaneous fermentation and ferment in very tiny lots, so that we truly understand the expression of the vineyard each year. We use very low levels of sulphur and don't fine or filter our red wines.
