Andy Joughin worked many years as Vineyard Manager for Santa Barbara Winery. He had a small home vineyard in Los Olivos, and was looking to plant varietals of niche value that matched the terroir. Winemaker Bruce McGuire recommended a few Italian selections. One was Primitivo, which we are now privileged to produce. This and other small lots the Joughin Vineyard harvests provided us with the incentive to offer special bottlings of interesting and unusual wines.
