Saturday, December 6th in 1969 gave birth to the Altamont Speedway Free Festival. The Rolling Stones had been speaking for weeks about capping their 1969 tour with a massive free concert. The venue had not come together and just one day before the Festival date, the new owners of the Altamont Speedway, east of Livermore agreed to host. With just 24 hours to prepare for 300,000 people, a rock n roll free-for-all was on the cards. The San Francisco chapter of the Hells Angels were paid $500 worth of free beer to hold the crowd together and then the rock n roll began…….

The Altamont Speedway Rock n Roll festival was built upon dreams, love for music and essential right to freedom. Certainly everything does not always go to plan and making wine is no exception. We set out to create wines that hold onto the Altamont dream, boundaries will be broken and our love for what we make will be the only guide.

2012 Sauvignon Blanc – First Release

Get ready for the aroma rush when first poured, crushed tomato seeds, snow pea shoots and muddled passion fruit pulp. When this rock n roll baby settles down, new season asparagus and crushed rocks get more serious with a squeeze of torched limejuice.
On the palate, signature minerality guides the tour with mouthwatering citrus flowing, red finger lime, bitter orange and imperial lemon. Intensity of flavor cant be ignored as lychee juice and wild guava lead you on an ultra fresh experience. The acid finishes of the set, balanced but lets you go gently..

Enjoy with the Altamont’s own recipe for KingFish…..
