Over the last 20ish years, owner/Winemaker Vailia From has seen every side of the wine industry, and there is something that has kept her here on the Central Coast. Here Desparada isn’t forced into any particular style, and is free to play, to discover and innovate. The wines of Desparada are guided more by spirit than style. Each wine stands for a particular vision, and in each vintage new knowledge, varietals, and vineyards to bring that vision into sharper focus. The wines are Bordeaux and Italian-varietal driven, with a focus on production in terra cotta Amphorae.
