Producer Profile

Dewey's Wines

In 2009, Charlie Miller embarked on a harvest job in Napa, setting off a journey that took him through cellars across the globe, from South Africa to New Zealand, Argentina, and back to California, with stops in San Francisco, Sonoma, and Santa Cruz along the way. With each experience, he refined his distinctive approach to winemaking.

The core of his expertise is divided between two key wineries: A.P. VIN, where he specialized in crafting vineyard-designate pinot noirs spanning the California coast, and Cruse Wine Company, where he served as assistant to Michael Cruse for five years. At Cruse, he honed his skills in producing a diverse range of wines, from meticulously crafted petillant naturels to complex, focused reds.

Where The Wines Come From


In California, the natural wine movement is thriving, with a diverse array of producers championing organic and biodynamic farming practices and minimal intervention winemaking techniques. From the rolling hills of Sonoma and Napa to the rugged coastline of Mendocino and Santa Barbara, California's winemakers are forging a new path, prioritizing sustainability, terroir expression, and authenticity. These vintners eschew additives and rely on native yeasts for fermentation, resulting in wines that are vibrant, expressive, and true to their origins. With a focus on indigenous grape varieties and a deep respect for the land, California's natural winemakers are reshaping the state's wine industry, offering consumers a taste of the Golden State's diverse terroir and innovative spirit.
