Focused on regeneratively farming tiny vineyards in Napa Valley and minimalist winemaking, James and Lorenza Allen channel their global experiences to make wines with balance, substance, and soul. They believe the accents of wine are best revealed by understanding its roots.

Wanderlust drove both curious minds to a combined six universities and twenty wineries across fifteen regions in seven countries, where they learned from the wisdom of winemaking masters and honed their individual styles. But it wasn't until they met while studying in France that the magic happened. Friendship led to romance years later and a wedding on the vineyard one warm harvest evening between punchdowns. Since then, they’ve collaborated on every grape, wine, and label.

Lorenza and James farm four vineyards around Napa Valley - no tractor, no irrigation, and no tilling. They treat each vine like a bonsai and use cover crops to replenish the soil each winter. To combat climate change they employ regenerative and organic methods as well as lightweight glass, carbon-capturing natural cork, and good old-fashioned activism.

Rich black forest fruits set the foundation from which kirsch and spice notes do lift to fill the nose. Lush and velvety while fresh and balanced on the tongue. A long finish lay dusted with fine tobacco, chocolate, and espresso.
