2015 RWB Sleettown Futures

It began with dedication...


and 96 acres of land in Central Kentucky. The land was bought and inhabitaed by freed slaves In 1865, the settlement became known as Sleettown, named for three African American brothers: Henry, Preston and George.
 To us, Sleettown represents the struggle to achieve things thought to be beyond your means. It reflects the hard work and perserverence you put into something to call your own.

Pinot Noir also warrants such hard work and dedication so, It seems fitting to call this collaboration Sleettown Pinot Noir.
Honor with us those who devote their lives to the noble struggle to achieve their dreams.

It’s no coincidence that Jarod Sleet, a descendant of the Sleettown founders, has that same desire for “collaboration” that has made the partnership of winemakers Bertony Faustin and Jarod Sleet a successful venture.

Futures will be released the weekend of Nov 25th & shipped Monday the 27th

It has since been awarded to several service oreiented students completing high school and transitioning into college.

 

Inspiration:By Sadé

  In working on these paintings, I drew a lot of my inspiration from Sandro Botticelli’s painting, The Birth of Venus. Aphrodite’s pose for her birth from the sea heavily impacted my decision to play with its form and recreate what I would call the Afrodite Series; Khoudia, Imaan, and Liya. Each Afrodite work depicts a Black woman adorned with beautiful natural hair in different styles and textures, hence the name choice of “Afro”dite.
Being the goddess of love, I painted Afrodite in such a way that her viewer would fall in love with her each time they looked at her. Each work needed to evoke the power she had for making anyone fall in love. I also wanted her beauty to stand apart from any other depiction of what Aphrodite would traditionally resemble- she, like Bertony’s wine, needed to be unique and invigorating.

2015 Pinot Gris "Wow"

As with our 2012 vintage, we've decided not to blend our Pinot Gris and let it shine on its own. Fruit-forward, with balanced acidity, this is a perfect pairing for a diversity of meals or simply enjoying on the patio.

2014 Pinot Noir “Compliqué”

The word “Compliqué” is french for complex. In the world of bigger is better, Pinot Noir is usually misunderstood. She’s like a melody with highs and lowsbut only worthy souls learn to dance to her music. So the question of the moment is “Are you worthy?”

Red, White, & Black Contribution

Red, White & Black is an independently produced documentary funded by sweat, a can do spirit and our community. Without all three this project would never have made it past an idea and conversation. To take it down the path to completion will mean support from everyone who believes these stories should be told. Hit the link below to provide what support you can.   Contribute as little as $5 or increase the qty to your desired amount. Better yet, come visit our North Plains tasting room to enjoy a day of wine tasting with Bertony Faustin, the man behind the idea that is Red, White & Black.
