“The difference created by the discretionary effort released when you work in good faith with local farmhands is so much more than the savings that might be achieved from cost-cutting, that there’s no comparing the two. We have never looked back.” Garage Wine began quite literally in Pilar and Derek’s Garage. After half a dozen vintages making wine for an informal market of family and friends, they began exporting their wine in 2006.
Lots of delicious red fruit that is held down by earthy spiciness and solid tannins.
