Tom Rappe is the winemaker for this custom made wine, linked to Wine Fusion, and the winery supplying the wine is Bear Creek Winery in the town of Lodi, with the wine region named after it, just south from Sacramento. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon do obviously come from Lodi, but it is especially known for its (old vine) Zinfandels. The winery started off as a cooperative in 1934 and was taken over by the Kautz family in 1997, therefore also linked to the Kautz’s Ironstone Vineyards and its family of brands.

Since the takeover the winery developed itself into a state of the art operation and has become the 6th largest family-owned wine producer in the USA, an outsourcing leader. Making custom blends, as well as supplying third parties, under the motto of ‘to help brands and businesses of our customers succeed’. The Kautz farms oversee 7000 acres of vineyards, itself dating back to 1948 as John Kautz originally established the business and moved from growing vegetables to grapes and making wine.
