Dave Homewood started as a home winemaker in 1983 when he and two friends produced wine from a ton of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery was founded in 1988, with an initial case production of about 500 cases. Today, Dave is still the winemaker, and produces a variety of wines from his micro-winery in the Carneros District of Sonoma.
