    ABOUT THIS WINE

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

    Monte Rio Cellars is a collaboration between longtime friends Patrick Cappiello and Pax Mahle.

    Following a successful career as a sommelier and restaurant owner in New York City, Patrick set his sights on the West Coast to make wine. He launched Monte Rio Cellars with the help of his buddy and highly-respected winemaker, Pax.

    Patrick and Pax's philosophy is to make hand-crafted wines in the spirit of old California. With this idea in mind, they work with family-owned, organically farmed vineyards and keep the winemaking simple. Spontaneous fermentations take place with whole cluster grapes in stainless steel and concrete, and aging takes place in neutral oak barrels. The goal is to make moderate alcohol, higher acid, fresh wines, naturally.

    As a restaurant buyer and young consumer Patrick was always frustrated by the lack of affordable, honest wines from California. Monte Rio Cellars is his answer to that, and another step for California towards the new direction of balanced, food-friendly wines for the people! 90 year old Zinfandel vines from Shergill vineyard in Lodi. Monte Rio is certified organic.
