More about this Producer
Carini makes their wines as the fruit comes to them; nothing added (water, acids, enzymes, color enhancers), and nothing taken away (centrifuging, fining, or filtration). These wines are all true representations of their time and place of origin. Most of the wine making decisions are based strictly on sensory evaluation and intuition as opposed to laboratory analysis and recipes.
Their operation is about as low tech, old world, and small as they come. Everything is done by hand by one of them. One will drive the truck to get their fruit, they crush, punch down, bottle, label; all by hand. They design the labels, build the website, market and sell the wine.
Carini is not attempting to replicate anything; their intent is to craft wines that are completely distinct, and more profound than anything you’ve ever tasted. The foundation of their endeavor is to acquire physiologically ripe fruit from only the finest and most nurtured vineyards in California. They carefully choose their vineyards taking into consideration soil, climate, exposure, grape variety, farming practices , and history.
