Well Winter's gone, and here at DMP the Spring has brought us possibly the best wine we've ever made! Blessed with wonderful Palmaz Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, last Fall be decided to go off the reservation and attempt a Cabernet Rose... Not just bleeding off a late harvest Cab, but sacrificing the real deal Clone 15 tonnage to make a fresh pressed Rose... The results, STUNNING! Comments from our Mentors (people who make the best wine in the world for a living) ranged from "You made THIS?" to "How many cases do you have?" to "Don't you wish you had 6 pallets of this stuff!" We'll take that all as an extreme compliment... : )
DAN MILLS PRODUCTIONS WINE BLOG
A true "garagiste" experence, shooting here allows a hands on tour, taste and real world view of both the art and science, of premium winemaking.
We began producing small lots of ultra premium wines in 2005 and have increased production each year to our current limited release production of 1200 bottles. As an added bonus of working with the studio, clients can see, smell, touch and taste our current releases, as well as sample from our barrels, or even help with the crush. You will see and experience the craft of winemaking not possible at even the smallest boutique winery, as you compare lot by lot, barrel by barrel in our on-site micro facility.
Sourcing fruit from only select vineyards, we have been making luscious hand-crafted wines for the exclusive enjoyment of our clients and guests. These varietals have included a Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Carneros Syrah, Plymouth Sangiovese and Yountville Rose of Pinot Noir.
