Markus Wine Co.
What we love
Swiss-born winemaker Markus Niggli is passionate about creating blends using rare grapes. His wines are unlike other blends you’ll find in California. The 2016 Torrontés is exotically spiced and tropical, displaying notes of gardenia, shaved coconut, banana and pineapple. Mineral complexity adds a drying, chalky texture. Markus has a truly magic touch as a winemaker.
