’Umami” refers to the umami-sense that wild mushrooms often provide. The vineyards are surrounded by edible local mushrooms. The name was combined with the French sensibility of the winemaker for wines that express complexity & terroir notes often found in umami-foods like foraged mushrooms. The winemaker is the acclaimed Frenchman Laurent Montalieu of Four Graces and Solena fame.
