Evesham Wood Wines
Evesham Wood, Le Puits Sec Vineyard, and Haden Fig Wines are owned and operated by Erin And Jordan Nuccio. Their winery has a magical sense of place. Take a sip and be transported to the vineyard on a sunny summer day. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the wind in the vines, the scream of a raptor overhead, the clank of the bottling line in the cellar behind the vineyard. The scent of dry dusty red earth, fir and cedar hang in the air.
Erin and Jordan bought the winery from former owners Russ and Mary Raney in 2010 after working with Russ for several years. They have a superbly maintained biodynamic old vine vineyard, a label synonymous with quality at a great price, and legions of loyal fans.
More About Evesham Wood Wines
Russ Raney comments on the sale: "After 24 years of a mixture of euphoria and despair (only a little bit of the latter) - Mary & I had a golden opportunity to retire early, when we had the great fortune of meeting and working with Erin Nuccio and his wife, Jordan."
Russ says: "I'll be helping Erin & Jordan out for the next 2 years or so but that will be the extent of my "wine making activity"....certainly won't be giving up its consumption though! Hearing Erin say that "nothing will change at Evesham Wood" was music to my ears. Our philosophies on wine making and vyd. management are virtually identical."
Before Erin purchased Evesham Wood, he had his own label, Haden Fig. The label continues with new releases twice a year.
We asked Erin about the future of Haden Fig when the purchase was announced: "Haden Fig will continue down the path started three years ago with even more opportunity for experimentation and allowing me to really push the envelope in working towards creating wine that truly embraces the philosophies of sustainable viticulture and natural winemaking. Jordan and I are thankful to Russ and Mary for making this possible and we are thankful to you for helping us grow. This is exciting news for Haden Fig and good things are to come!"
The name Haden Fig is curious to say the least, and I asked Erin how the name originated. He said, "When it came time to name the winery we were up to our ears in baby books trying to pick the perfect name for our soon-to-be-born baby boy. This was an enormous and exhausting task, but finally the name Haden came to us. I am not sure if we had stumbled upon the name of our winery or the name of our son, but it stuck in both cases. As for the 'fig' component, this might have been a subconscious homage to Mark Twain and his Huck Finn. It just sounded right, and it has become the name of a dream realized."
