In the winery, the goal of Swiss-born winemaker Markus Niggli is to faithfully express the unique character of each vineyard block using modern equipment to accomplish traditional winemaking techniques. To this end, natural yeast from the vines and natural ML are used, along with complete bypassing of the press altogether to make the smoothest, most complex wines, most of which are barrel-aged.
A cozy tasting room adjoins the winery near where Steve’s mother was born, surrounded by idyllic vines and the homes of three entire generations of Borra’s, creating what could truly be called “La Dolce Vita.” They invite you to stop by the tasting room, BorraVineyards.com or Facebook.com/Borra-Vineyards and become a fan. less
