Failla

"While the history of Failla (pronounced FAY-LA) is short, it is not without its complexities - our first vintage release was as Failla-Jordan in 1998. That year, Failla's first release of Alban Vineyard Viognier (Edna Valley) and Que Syrah Syrah (Sonoma Coast) coincided with planting the first blocks at our Estate Vineyard in Cazadero. The first Estate releases would be several years away."

K&S Comment:

"Ok... here it is. This is one of my all-time favorites.
Their tastings are unassuming,
relaxed, they lack pretense. The wine is ridiculous
and the folks pouring are as knowledgeable
as you need them to be. I literally get giddy
when I have them on my dance card.
Btw... the wife and I drink Failla at almost
every wedding anniversary. It's worked for
20+ years. Thank you Failla! 😊"
