Our selection is crafted by Le Vigne winery in Paso Robles, California. The winery is owned by Walter and Sylvia Filippini, and run by their son, Domenico. Sylvia's family first bought the property in 1962. At the time, it was a cattle ranch, and that's how it stayed until 1982, when vines were planted.
By 1995, it was obvious that this was going to be a successful venture. So instead of selling their grapes, they decided to build a state-of-the-art winery and make their own wine.
Both of the owners are impressive on their own. Sylvia has a very successful business career and Walter is the owner of Peacock Cheese, one of the finest importers of quality cheese in the United States. It's no wonder they know how to run a winery.
In 1982, there were all of 17 wineries in Paso Robles. Today, there are over 300. The area has grown by leaps and bounds, and while Rh?ne varietals like Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre have found a niche here, it is still the Cabernet Sauvignon that turns heads.
Our selection is no exception. Here is power and presence in a Cabernet that could rival any area on Earth, even Napa. I know that may sound like heresy, but it's true. We've featured enough of them to know.
Rich, concentrated and imposing, this wine leaves no doubt about what it is. It's Cabernet at its finest, with enough black cherry, currant, licorice, leather and earth to leave you gasping for more.
