In the early 1980s I started working for Estrella River Winery (also known as the Gary Eberle School of Wine). There, I was star-struck by the amazing wines coming from this little known winemaking region called Paso Robles. Before that most of my wine consumption experience was built around the wines from Napa. So for me it was truly an eye-opening experience.
 
From there I chose a different path. I decided to get into a business that made money. I moved back to Los Angeles and worked in the engineering field for a number of years. But, once exposed to the enchanting world of wine, there is no cure. My Father moved to the Central Coast and planted a small Cabernet vineyard. Well, that was all the motivation I needed. I moved back to the Central Coast and opened a small winery with my family that specialized it the production of small lots of single vineyard wines. Developing an understanding that great wines are made in the vineyard gave me the opportunity to express myself in the world of wine. For those of you who were able to enjoy the wines of Laverne Vineyard, I am grateful.
 
It was my fortunate pleasure to have been introduced to the Filipponi family in the early 1990s. The wonderful close family bond and heritage of this family on the Central Coast is legendary. They have given me the opportunity to make wines that I feel best showcase the Central Coast.
