    • Inspired by his immersion in the Slow Food movement in Berkeley while attending UC-Berkeley, Scotty Sampler is about measured risk, and pushing boundaries without veering into weird territory.  He takes this experimentation to the next level with Scotty-Boy! fine wines & super coolers, the natty offshoot of CCGP whose mantra is "nothing added/nothing taken away”.  It's all about transparency – no inoculations, no additions, no added sulfur, native fermentations, always bottled unfined and unfiltered, with the grapes being the focus: they source only from small family owned vineyards, farmed at the very least without chemical spraying, if not organically and/or biodynamically; and are only harvested by hand. Whereas Scott's CCGP wines are bigger, bolder and ageable, Scotty Boy! bottles are fresh and young, meant to be drunk sooner rather than later, always with a good chill.

      Viognier gets 42 days skin contact, Chardonnay 183 days, and Grenache Blanc 48 days.  Rich and luscious from the insane amount of skin contact, but manages to stay bright, fresh and full of primary fruit and zippy acid.
