Wine, at least for me, has many facets. It’s a business, a passion, a way to continue farming. Hopefully I can transfer a sustainable way of life, to yet another generation.
My (ad)venture in wine seems to me to be a natural progression of history. Having been influenced all my life by my father’s, uncle’s, and their forbearer’s lives in Napa agriculture, they have left, as part of their legacy, their deep and abiding affinity for the land from which came not only their livelihood, but also life full of purpose.
Given this legacy one does not continue farming for dispassionate reasons alone—there are easier ways to make a living.
And thus, taking the next step and putting one’s name on a bottle of wine does not come lightly. After almost a decade of making wine, I now feel confident that the quality of what is in the bottle honors the past, and will give pride to future generations.
I hope you will try one or more of my wines and let me know if you agree. Your best chance of finding these hard to find wines are direct from the winery. All are produced in small quantities, and even smaller fermentation lots that are then carefully blended together.
