Why grow Italian grapes?

I fell in love with the grapes of Italy while learning about wine, first Nebbiolo, then Aglianico, then on and on. For those of us who love earthy wines full of savory soulfulness, Italian wine is the place to be. And while planting and growing them, it became clear that they will also be the key to California's wine future.

What makes Prima Materia wines different?

We want the grape and our volcanic terroir to speak first. We honor each wine's tradition through how we prune, train, and cultivate our grapes, and then using low impact techniques in the winery such as long aging in neutral barrels and slow fermentations. 

What is the best way to try them?

For a limited time you can try a mixed case for $275 that ships to most states.
