“Wines taste alive when they come from vines surrounded by life, terroir that speaks loudly and winemaking that doesn’t get in the way.” -La Onda
Dani Rozman’s philosophy is as deeply intertwined with nature as it gets, and he admits that it’s hard work farming La Onda’s 4 acres of vines on elevated, terraced slopes amidst the North Yuba CA terroir of vines, granite, red clay, herbs, flowers, insects, bees and animals. While the surroundings are wild, the farming is free of chemicals, irrigation, and tillage, and the grapes are all meticulously harvested by hand.
Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot are vinified simply and purely, never manipulated. A must try!
Dani also happens to make wines in the Itata region of Chile with Leo Erazo, where he experiments with the same varieties from Northern California to Southern Chile! Find them all on Raisin’s map of winemakers 🍇
