Quantum is the smallest unit of energy achievable in science. Each tiny particle – each singular quantum – holds unique potential to contribute to a larger being. When these units combine, each quantum contributes its specific essence, resulting in a system of great expression and complexity. Similarly in wine, Beringer recognizes that each grape varietal offers unique flavor and structure, and that each vineyard and block of vines contributes yet another expression of those varietals. In other words, each of these components acts as a quantum. When these varietals, or quanta combine, they produce something of far greater value. Something that bundles a source of life; something marked by layered complexity.
Beringer farms a unique and irreplaceable collection of remarkable vineyard sites, and Chief Winemaker Laurie Hook has been working with wines from these vineyards for over 25 years. With the Quantum blend, Laurie highlights the individual properties of each varietal to create a wine with balance, structure and flavor.
