Birichino Winery was founded in 2008 by Alex Krause and John Locke, two Bonny Doon alumni. Their focus is making harmonious wines, sourcing fruit from old, organic Santa Cruz vineyards to produce food-friendly wines higher in acid and lower in alcohol. The winemakers put emphasis on the grape varieties they feel most naturally appeal to the senses, creating effortlessly pleasurable wines that focus on balance over power.

The 2017 vintage is a dark purple crimson, with amazingly dense aromas of black currant and violets, and a long finish that remains wonderfully lifted and fresh, but firmly supported by fine tannins.
