About This Wine:
It’s a way of life he learned at a young age while working at his father’s auto wrecking yard. So he has never been afraid of work. He brought that mentality to his first wine harvest in 1993, and has never looked back.
Through grit and determination, and without any formal training, Sinor became one of the most decorated winemakers in California’s Central Coast region. Along the way, he married Cheri LaVallee in 1996 — in Burgundy, France, no less — and they started their own label. In 2013, they acquired the ocean-view Bassi Vineyard, just 1.2 miles from Avila Beach in the heart of the San Luis Obispo wine country.
It was the destination they’d always been seeking — a singular vineyard they could steward with holistic and meticulous viticulture. Their 2016 Pinot Noir demonstrates how special that vineyard is, producing a wine that’s intense yet round, balanced… and delicious.
