Louisa Sawyer Lindquist is the inspiration behind Verdad. In the late 80’s, while working at a retail store on Long Island, Louisa became enamored with the beauty and finesse of Spanish Albariño. She studied the different producers and styles and realized that Albariño is a remarkable wine both as an aperitif and as a great food wine. Soon Louisa was exploring other Spanish wines, and found that Tempranillo held the same allure for her. When she began working for a fine wine importer & distributor in New York, she had the opportunity to work with the Classical Wines of Spain portfolio and expand her knowledge. Louisa spent the early 80’s studying and working in the vineyards of Long Island. Her background in viticulture served her well when she moved to California and began working with wineries and their vineyards. She was amazed at the similarities between the Spanish wine country and California, and was surprised to find that there was very little Albariño or Tempranillo planted. About the same Read more »
