Homewood Winery is an artisan, handcrafted, and small-batch winery located in Carneros, Sonoma, owned and operated David Homewood, who is the pure definition of a “Author winemaker.” David is originally from Illinois, though he moved to California in the late 70s and produced his first vintage in 1983. His very distinctive style and his sense of "terroir wine" have made him an exceptional being who, for forty years, has never compromised his quality for the sake of commerce, or ever suffered from "Parker Syndrome". Homewood Winery is the perfect example of excellent wines that remain at more-than-reasonable prices.
I discovered by chance this outsider in 2001, I fell in love with his wines and his very "Old World" style. David will never publicly post that his wines are eco-responsible, because for him it goes without saying. He is convinced that his wines do not lie, and I am too. David Homewood wines are only available at the vineyard, online, or for the East Coast at Bonde Fine Wine. Thank you, David, for your trust and friendship for over 22 years, and sharing your talents with Massachusetts wine lovers.
A few of the Wines from Homewood Winery Available at Bonde Fine Wine:
Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Mendocino County, Sonoma $36.00
This Mendocino County red has a subtlety and approachability that isn’t typically expected from a California Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium body, red and black fruits are the forefront here with a balanced acidity and soft, smooth tannins on the finish. Oui for Steak Frites.
Malbec 2018, El Dorado County, Sierra Foothills, Eldorado $36.00
This wine is like a gold nugget in the riverbed. Far from being an average Malbec, with a medium body, aromas of black octopus’ ink, pencil sharpener, and graphite. Very mineral and elegant, it is quite tender and delicate, which it can accompany Italian sausages and French Fries no problem.
Zinfandel 2016, Hoskins Ranch Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma $34.00
With notes of tart red fruit, dry blueberries, and iron, with a luscious mouthfeel, subtle oak, and spices. This Zinfandel is closer to an Italian Primitivo by its dryness to a full body Zinfandel. This will welcome a meatball pasta bake casserole.
