At Steele Wines we have a minimalist winemaking style in that we use standard, non-GMO yeasts, natural fermentations, no extra additives or enzymes. We use a gentle pumpover during fermentations, inert gas to move the finished wines, and use gravity flow rather than pumping as much as possible. The use of gentle pumping and gravity flow decreases the chance of bruising the wine during cellar movement and is important to keeping fresh aromas and flavors in our wines. From hand picked grapes to gentle processing and our own bottling facility we know how our grapes are cared for from vineyard to bottle. We believe a lighter hand in the winemaking will highlight the aromas and the flavors of the quality fruit we source. We source fruit from as far away as Santa Barbara County to Washington State, to as close as next door, to give our customers a quality product they can enjoy everyday without paying ‘quality prices’.

I'm thinking of the "larger" more established wine makers, who try and bring their A-game across the spectrum of their varietals.To me the sign of a good wine maker and overall brand is someone who you can trust ev...

  • Steele reds are consistently excellent. Steele is known for vineyard designated Zins, with good reason, but some of the Shooting Star reds are a fantastic value. I am thinking of the Syrah and the Barbera at the moment.
