Arbios Praxis Cellars Praxis Lagrein 2005
During a trip to the Italian Alps, Bill became fascinated by this wine that he had never previously tasted. We first tried Lagrein while on a hunt to see the remains of Utzi, the Alpine Ice Man. (Susan was an archaeologist in her earlier life). Pronounced Lah-GRAYHN, these grapes have been grown in Northern Italy for over 300 years. In the spirit of Praxis where Bill gets to play a little with winemaking, we decided to make our own. We found a vineyard of American Lagrein on the Central Coast.
Arbios Cellars/Praxis Cellars is a small California family wine business. Bill Arbios makes the wine ( he has never done anything else professsionally) and Susan handles much of the rest. Arbios Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is our flagship wine while five Praxis wines are priced for more “everyday” drinking.
