"Old World Winery is a small, family owned and operated winery. Using grapes from our 100 year old, sustainable, and organic vineyards, we create “natural wines” that reflect our family history and the traditional winemaking (old world) practices in Sonoma County.

Pastoral winemaker and proprietor, Darek Trowbridge, has 20+ years of hands on experience in the art and science of vineyard management, grape production, and natural winemaking. His passion is inviting nature into his winemaking.   His processes are simple and direct and eliminates the need for any manufactured (man made) chemicals. This process involves effort and shepherding but not manipulation." - Old World Winery 

Foot stomped, then spends two days on skin and stems, pressed to barrel, and aged 1 year in French oak. Darek uses a natural sparkling process called Col Fondo - fresh juice from the apple cider harvest is added, then fermented in bottle. Every bottle is its own fermentation tank. The majority of this wine is inky, old vine Arbouriou with a little bit of cider juice, adding a yeasty funk.
