Product Description

The Wine: Chilion Skin Contact 2019

Ruth Lewandowski Chilion Skin Contact is a white skin-contact (orange wine) natural wine made from 100% Cortes grapes from Fox Hill Vineyard. Over 6 months of maceration with the skins for a wine that Evan Lewandowski describes as "Chilion is a chance for all to see just how incredibly complex this variety is...due mainly to the extended maceration on skins which provide amplified spice, herbs, and phenolics than we're all accustomed to with this particular grape."

The Producer: Ruth Lewandowski (Evan Lewandowski) 

Evan Lewandowski is a talented winemaker based in Utah who makes natural wines under the label Ruth Lewandowski. His winemaking philosophy is based on the cycle of death and redemption, in the physical and the spiritual realms. The name Ruth is not from any of Evan’s female family members but from one books in the Bible, the book of Ruth – Evan’s favorite.

Evan believes that: “Death is, indeed, the engine of life. Nothing that is alive today could be so without something having died first. This is the nature of our universe, of our planet, of our soils, plants, and ultimately you and I. The labels for all three wines are likely making a little bit more sense now, the death of each animal and the life springing forth because of it.”

Evan decided to establish his winery in Utah after having fallen in love with the place during his college years – he attended the University of Utah.

Shipping & Returns

Stress Free Shipping

At Primal Wine we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us at (424) 414-2040 or via e-mail at between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns.

We may make arrangements for a return and refund if appropriate, and only after we receive unopened products back to our warehouse.
