"Zeugma: The use of a single word that refers to two meanings. From the ancient Greek, meaning "yoking together". I vinify the wine in two different ways (normal, open-top fermentation and carbonic) and then blend. I like the idea of working with a single varietal from a single site and treating it in different ways to find balance."-CL
