A classy winemaker with aspirations to make California the new Burgundy
- With a Masters in wine from UC Davis, Christina's worked in prestigious wineries all over California, Burgundy and Bordeaux. We knew we absolutely had to work with her!
- She approached us with a desire to craft high end Burgundy-styled wines without the pomp or pretense. We were very impressed with the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay parcels that she was discovering all over California.
- With Angel funding she'll be able to find the best California has to offer at an unbeatable price.
Christina Pallmann's Story
Earlier in my life, when I lived in San Francisco, I drank wine because wine tastings in Napa were the cheapest way to get a heat on. It was still free in them there days!
Then, while I was living in Paris, I tasted a bottle of 1976 Le Montrachet Domaine de la Romanée Conti. That was the beginning of the end for me. In France, everyone and their grand mother makes wine. It was so easy to meet people and learn from them.
