Producer Profile

Miles Garrett

I compensate my crew between $15 to $25 per hour and engage with the WWOOF organization for work/trade labor. WWOOFers consistently commend our establishment as the finest they've experienced. We provide wooden yurts for lodging, loaner bicycles and a car, hot showers, bathrooms, WiFi, and meals. In exchange, they contribute four hours of work daily. I attribute much of our operational success to Carla, my wife, who handles the business side adeptly despite not being a fervent wine enthusiast. Leading our harvest crew is Johanne Rapine, a remarkable Frenchwoman who has been with us every vintage.

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.
