About Divergent Vines
"The story of divergent vine is about an underdog, an outsider, an unknown-non-traditionally trained winemaker trying to make it in the crazy wine industry.
My road less traveled inspires me to create natural wines from lesser known grape varietals, tell the stories of vineyards they come from, and provide a unique interpretation of varietals you might be more familiar with...all done with non-intervention winemaking techniques.
So pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass, and come along for the ride. It's bound to be a journey of epic proportions.

About Charlotte Dalton
"I love wine. I have been making wine all over the world for close to two decades. I have been drinking wine all over the world for longer. I love how I feel when I walk through vineyards. I love the journey of turning grapes into wine. I love to watch the personalities develop in every single barrel and I love to observe the effect of the years passing on bottles of wine. To drink my friend's wines brings me so much pleasure as does discovering wines from artists and places that I don't know.
I think wine can be felt. I get so much joy making the Charlotte Dalton wines that surely, you will feel joy when you drink them. I firmly believe that a wine must be made with a happy heart and a content soul. And that is, simply, why I make the Charlotte Dalton Wines; to bring me joy, happiness and contentedness and to share and hopefully pass those feelings on to you through the wines.
In case you were wondering; Dalton is my middle name and was my Grandfather Hardy's christian name. When my 3 brothers and I were little children, my amazing and dearly missed mother, used to tuck us into bed at night and say ""love you, love me - love me, love you""

"Margins produces low-intervention wines using grapes from underrepresented regions, vineyards, and varietals. We are part of the growing movement in California to make wines from vineyards farmed organically or in organic conversion using minimal additives during the winemaking process, thereby showcasing the vineyards the grapes came from.
Much like people living on the 'margins of society,' vineyards can be outcasts too. Most consumers of wine are only familiar with a handful of grape growing regions and types of wine. Margins draws attention to vineyards and varietals throughout northern and central California that find themselves on the margins without the recognition they deserve.
Part of the Margins mission over the last five years has been to work with small growers to transition their vineyards from conventional to organic farming by providing guidance as well as assurance that the grapes will have a home. We believe that if we worked solely with organic vineyards, we would not be using our role in the industry to its full potential to enact agricultural change. As of vintage 2021, all the vineyards Margins works with are farmed organically.
Margins is a winemaking endeavor of Megan Bell, a winemaker living and working in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Prior to settling on the central coast of California, Megan received her BS in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis in 2012 and apprenticed in wineries and vineyards in Napa, the Livermore Valley, the Willamette Valley, Central Otago (NZ), and the Loire Valley (France). - Margins"
