We are a Micro-Winery crafting single vineyard designate wines of excellence. Our wines are sustainably farmed, hand harvested and basket pressed. Many small lots are hand bottled and hand labeled by Dylan and myself. We make limited productions of award winning Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Graciano, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. A few special vineyards only yield enough for a single barrel (just 25 cases).
A Micro-Winery Love Story
A chance meeting in a wine bar led to one simple kiss. Five weeks later Dylan and I were engaged. We sold what little we owned and embarked on a wine making adventure around the world. After making wine in New Zealand and France we returned home to California in late 2002.
While living in an abandoned winery on a blow up mattress, we scoured the wine regions of California for vineyards of integrity. With purple feet, a borrowed basket press and a passion for the ancient art of winemaking, we created the first vintage of Sheldon Wines in 2003. Wanting to remain true to our vision we refused to partner with investors. We spent nights working in restaurants and days in the winery often pulling 90 hour work weeks. Our dreams began to take shape when Sheldon Wines started to draw national attention in the wine world.
