"When I began as the winemaker at Toca Madera in March of 2014, I was given the freedom to make the kind of wines I dreamed of making. I have created a life for myself by listening to nature and capturing the essence of the grape. Our wines reflect the distinctive character of the grapes grown in our vineyard. No concentrates. No tannin additives. Nothing to alter the flavor. Methods that often masquerade as good wine-making. My approach: Produce the best wine possible, with integrity. To make wine that is a direct reflection of how I grow the grapes."
~ Shayne Vetter, Winemaker
