Szakál grew up in the vineyard learning the art of winemaking from the ground (or dirt) up. He was helping his grandparents during the summer holiday taking care of the vines and fruit trees. He quickly learned the value of hard work in the vineyard that produce high quality fruit at harvest. He believes great wine is made in the vineyard; therefore, he works with the best and most dedicated growers in Napa and Sonoma. He also searches out special sites that are not only specifically well suited for the varietal but also provide advantages in less than perfect vintages.
