Our winemaker, Josh McDaniel’s, is an up and coming wine making guru for the new millennium. He credits his growth in the industry to numerous people and events.

Josh volunteered for Don during crush and asked for advice and help from Chris. Eventually Chris helped him out with his first 25 plant Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard and Don helped him with the winemaking to start Sweet Valley Wines. Today, with the help of his father, a few other family members and close friends, he develops our wines while continuing to work for Leonetti Cellar, and all in conjunction with finishing his studies at the Institute of Enology and Viticulture in Walla Walla.

They lead the charge on new initiatives and dare to be different. They are established purveyors of consistent quality. Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity dig deeper into an icon of this type. Villa ... Read More

Therefore, in 1991, a passionate group of true believers formed ZAP, Zinfandel Advocates and Producers. This group is made up of winemakers and Zinfandel lovers alike. Their mission is to educate the ... Read More
