We’re big fans of Avi Deixler, who is making some of California’s purest natural wines under the label Absentee Winery. Avi converted a former milking station on a Point Reyes dairy farm into his production facility and cellar. Sourcing fruit exclusively from Poor Ranch vineyard in Hopland, Avi believes in native fermentation, no additions (including sulphur), and no temperature control. When he says on his label “ingredients: grapes,” he means it! Trained as a cooper, Avi likes to work with used barrels, which he takes apart, shaves raw, and then uses for fermenting and aging his wine. The result is a level of purity, depth and beauty that sings of unadulterated California.
