A friend once asked Michael Almquist a life-changing question: “Do you want to help me make some wine in my garage?” That was 2005. Since then, Michael has made thousands of gallons of wine, with a focus on:
Every varietal, every technique: rosé-style, pressed sweet, pressed at zero, free run, hard pressed, extended maceration, and carbonic maceration.
Every varietal made with dozens of different yeast strains.
Putting together all the insights learned from the best of the best batches. Add to the equation numerous barrels from various forests, with varying toast levels, made by different coopers from around the world and … Eureka!
