Winemaker/Proprietor Darek Trowbridge studied winemaking with his grandfather, Lino Martinelli, who's information was gleaned from his Italian ancestors through his immigrant father Giuseppe Martinelli. Together they worked the land they had settled in Forrestville, growing grapevines and making wine as one of their means of income. Lino embodied the Old World spirit of growing grapes and making wine with the consideration that everything a vintner does in the vineyard and in the winery affects the flavor of the wine. Only indigenous yeast from the vineyard were employed for fermentation and nothing was ever added to the wine except sulfur. This Old World knowledge is truly enhanced when put together with a contemporary education. Darek got his Bachelor's Degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in Viticulture (Grape Growing).
