We drove to the vineyards and one could not help but marvel at the stark beauty of this land. The hills undulated with vineyards. It was Fall. So, the leaves had changed color and in most cases had fallen off. The first vineyard we went to were at least 80 years old! You could look at the vines and the thick, gnarly trunks made them look like old men stooping over! There are Zinfandel vines in Sonoma that look this old.
We are an importer based in the town of Reno, Nevada nestled in the Sierra Nevadas. We specialize in small to mid sized growers from France, Spain and Greece. Soon we will have producers represented from Portugal, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina. We encourage producers who grow sustainably and whose wines show an unmistakable character of their terroir!
