I owe so much to Larry Perrine, Christopher Tracy & Allison Dubin from Channing Daughters Winery in Bridgehampton, NY. They understood my passion for wine, nurtured my interest, expanded my pallete & gave me a better understanding of what makes great wines great. I would not be here today if not for their contributions to my life.
When I first move from Long Island to Napa & expressed interest in taking my home winemaking hobby to the next level by getting licensed & making wines for the public, it was Jill & Steve who helped me navigate my way. I thank them for their knowledege & generosity.

When I heard from Steve Matthiasson that there was this guy named Charlie out in El Dorado that was growing Refosco, I knew I had to meet him & buy his grapes. Charlie was growing varietals that we had been working with when I was at Channing Daughters, so I was excited for the opportunity to see how these grapes would perform here in California. We will be releasing some of the wines that we made from Charlie’s Lone Pine Vineyards Lagrein & Refosco sometime in early 2018.
