Forlorn Hope

FORLORN HOPE, MATTHEW RORICK, Napa

Born from a desire to connect both California’s viticultural potential and its diverse viticultural history the name Forlorn Hope is taken from the Dutch ‘verloren hoop’ meaning lost troop, a name given to the band of soldiers who volunteered to lead the charge into enemy defences, their chances of survival slim but the rewards and glory huge. These wines produced from unknown appellations and uncommon varieties are Forlorn Hope’s headlong rush into the breach. No additives are used in the production of the wines, no new oak is used and most only have small additions of sulphur.
