A winery’s success depends on the devotion and grit of a tenacious lot.
Making wine is a labor of love. It’s tireless, sometimes cold, sometimes sticky, often painstaking, but at the end of the day, it’s 100% worth it. We’re lucky to have a tight knit, fun loving diverse crew that’s as hardworking as they come, and committed to making great wine.
Timothy Milos: Winemaker
Timothy Milos jokes that he’s “dropped out of some of the best schools in the country.” A master craftsman if there ever was one, he is known for supreme attention to detail, organizational strategy, ingenuity and problem-solving fermentation management. “Every wine, every fermentation,” he says, “is a living system. It is its own ecology, and it evolves over time. It is as complex a matrix as you could ask for.” Dedicated to producing terroir driven wines over a 20 year span, he uses traditional winemaking techniques and a minimalist approach in order to reveal the distinction of each unique wine.
