We've been making wine commercially for over 30 years now, organic wine for the last 20 years. Making the same wines year after year can get a bit boring so those of you who have followed our products for some time have noticed we mix things up a bit each year by adding new wines, trying out new vineyards and styling wines so they best reflect the oddities of each vintage.

We've been making wine commercially for over 30 years now, organic wine for the last 20 years. Making the same wines year after year can get a bit boring so those of you who have followed our products for some time have noticed we mix things up a bit each year by adding new wines, trying out new vineyards and styling wines so they best reflect the oddities of each vintage. While we like to hear from consumers, (both opinions and questions) we avoid retail (not enough time) and even avoid wholesale sales (direct to stores), as we are bad at collections. Tony Norskog, winemaker and partner, has been making wines for over 25 years. His career includes a stint as head winemaker for Nevada City Winery along with various adventures through the Central Coast of California and France as chief tank washer and grape crusher. He received his degree in enology from the University of California at Davis in 1977, the most prestigious winemaking school in the country. Tony has also been one of the vanguard winemakers within the organic wine world, helping to create outstanding organic sulfite free wines at a great value since 1989. Tony's knowledge of organics and how to hand craft wines with distinct characteristics, all the while eschewing chemicals and preservatives, speaks volumes about why he started this endeavor and how he plans to continue it. Donn Berdahl, assistant winemaker and partner, joined Tony in March of 2004. Donn and Tony's synergy is evidenced by the tremendous growth the company has seen since they joined forces, growing into a national brand with distribution in nearly every state in the union. Donn was formerly General Manager and on-site winemaker for a large custom crush facility that handled grapes for well known wineries and growers alike. His training came the old fashioned way, via apprenticeship. He was very fortunate to be mentored by two long time award-winning winemakers that started, and then consulted, at the custom facility. Donn came to the wine industry via Occidental College and has a great passion for the romance and lifestyle it offers. Read less

Organic, sulfite free wine doesn't often appeal to my palate. However, this one is drastically different. Not particularly smooth but a great taste regardless. I was quite delighted with this wine and it's price point. Perfect for the organically driven consumer. This pairs better with sweeter fare.

I love this wine. I generally tend more toward Gewürztraminer or lighter Alsachian wines, but this red really is versatile and every guest i've entertained loved it and couldn't believe how cheap it is!

For the price, great taste, especially being organic. Not everyday that you get a great drink for the price...

Ongoing vintages have added a healthy percentage (30%) of Mendocino grapes which bring the leaner mouth feel and more focused flavors of the region to the mix. A blend of Fresno Syrah and Carignan and Mendocino Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine should age well for a few years...if it lasts. - Winery
