ABOUT desparada

Desparada is the chronicle of winemaker Vailia From’s twists, turns and epiphanies as an explorer in a young and wild land. Vailia works with 20+ of the Central Coast’s finest vineyards, an ever-increasing arsenal of techniques and trials and a whole lot of spark to create inspired, elegant wines free of stylistic constraints and dogma. These are wines of a new world, rooted firmly in the wonder of the old. "An up and coming star in the Central Coast,” writes Jeb Dunnuck in Wine Advocate, saying the wines of Desparada “deliver serious depth and richness while staying pure, classy and very drinkable.”
