Only 144 cases of the Sulivan/Steele wine, named for Terry Sullivan of Upper Five and Bill and Barabara Steele of Cowhorn, will be released.

The organic grapes, grown in Upper Five\’s vineyard on the slopes above Talent, were put through their natural fermentation paces at Cowhorn\’s Applegate Valley winery.

\”Sullivan/Steele is just one example of how organic farmers can cooperatively bring better local food and wine to our community,\” said Barbara Steele, owner of Cowhorn in a press release. “Our first Sauvignon Blanc is proof that cooperation among commercial organic farmers can produce excellent results both in the glass and on the bottom line.”
