Avi Deixl, after being bit by the wine bug working in a retail shop in Ithaca “went through six years of dumping bags of white powder yeast, tartaric acid, sulfites - “into tanks”.... Then he met natural winemaker Tony Coturri and everything changed .....He bought an old dairy barn in beautiful Point Reyes, CA to make expressive soulful wine. He sources all of his fruit from Poor Ranch, an organically farmed vineyard in Mendocino County and hand sands his old barrels removing and residue or flaws.
