In 2016, Dan Marioni went to the Coturri Winery, a historic winemaking gem in Glen Ellen, to see what harvest was all about, and essentially never left. Dan began working with Nic Coturri, Tony's son, making wines under the Sonoma Mtn. Winery label. The duo created a philosophy that honors the new and the old world, while being uncompromising about additions and subtractions in the winery.
Sonoma Mtn Winery closed up shop in 2019 and Dan launched Marioni Wine, producing a variety of wines and styles that lean into each vintage and work uniquely with each site. Farming is 100% organic.
Fruit for this wine comes from Rademacher Vineyards and Sonoma Mountain Estate. 100% destemmed. Zero-zero. Notes of plump black fruits and bolstered acidity gives balance to this young cab blend. Just below the surface are the telltale signs of Rademacher Vineyards - pennyroyal and eucalyptus, cocoa, spice and a touch of cedar. This could be cellared or drunk immediately.
