David Homewood started as a home wine maker in 1983 when he and two friends produced the wine from a ton of Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon. Homewood winery was bonded in 1988, with an initial case production of about 500 cases.
All of the grapes are purchased from growers, so David can choose grapes from appellations where they do best. All of my reds are handcrafted, bottled unfiltered and unfined because every time you try to remove something you always take out other things out as well. I designed two of $16 wine bottle, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and one of the expensive wine bottle, Cabernet Sauvignon. Because David harvest his wine by himself, the use of drawing and portrait of him created a homey and handcrafted environment.”
