Keep it natural, baby.
Winemaker and proprietor Aaron Bryan has a nontraditional winemaking background. A classically trained economist, Aaron fell in love with the art and science of winemaking during his time at UC Santa Barbara. He continued his informal wine education during his time in New York City and when he moved back to the West Coast, started making beer and wine out of his garage in the Mission District of San Francisco. Eventually, he met a group of urban winemakers on Treasure Island and started trading beer for a few barrels of cellar space. In 2013 he was invited into the facility full time and has been producing Conduit and Divergent Vine wines and Tag + Jug Cider since.
We strive to make wines that are balanced, food-friendly, and are built to last. To achieve this, we rely on the following guiding principles:
We believe there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to achieving balance in wine.
We source our fruit from family-owned vineyards that follow (at minimum) sustainable farming practices.
We use minimal sulfur in order to protect the wines for aging.
We make no apologies for producing California wine.
We never stop tinkering.
We believe in fostering community.
No pretense, elitist, or snobby a**holes.
