Philosophy

It is my wholehearted belief that the best wines start in the vineyard, that the quality of the grapes and how they were sourced matter above all else. This is why I hunt and search for vineyards owned by individuals and family farmers with minimally invasive viticultural practices in place. This hunt has led me to source fruit from a few different and unique corners of Northern California wine country growing regions. Regions that might be more obscure and less recognized, but nowhere near lacking in character and quality. It is very fulfilling to help illuminate and shine a light on these off the beaten path regions with my wines. Everything I bring in from the vineyard is done by hand in small lots to preserve each vineyard’s character and to let the grapes tell their own story throughout fermentation and aging. I pride myself in fresh, artisan, clean and low intervention winemaking practices which in turn, culminate into a hand-crafted true and honest representation of sunlight, soil and a little bit of magic.
