Our Wines

Daniel and Sam choose to work with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon because they feel they have something unique to say with these mainstay California wines.  “We believe that with the correct selection of vineyards and the judicious use of artisanal techniques and barrel aging, wines of moderate alcohol, finesse, and terroir expression can be produced in California” explains Daniel.
