ABOUT THE PRODUCER: “Dave Homewood started as a home winemaker in 1983 when he and two friends produced wine from a ton of Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon. The following year they added a ton of Alexander Valley chardonnay. In 1986, they purchased their first ton of chardonnay from the newly formed Carneros AVA (appellation) and the styles of wine that Homewood Winery became noted for were born.”
