We search for gripping vineyards, chasing flavors and capturing their character. We keep our wines young & vibrant, yet rich and elegant.
~ Winemaker Sandro Tamburin

Anthesis Wines is D’Argenzio Winery’s sister label. Sandro and his wife Breanna Tamburin (daughter of Ray D’Argenzio) are the founders and owners of the Anthesis label.

Winemaker Sandro Tamburin’s passion for viticulture and fermentation has always been a part of him. He grew up in the vineyards of Trieste, Northeastern Italy, and took his memories of his grandfather cane pruning their estate vineyard with him when he came to America when he was 17 years old. Sandro strives to make his wine in the old way, “Alla Vecia”, where they leave the skin in contact with the juice for a prolonged period of time.

Their first release includes 2016 vingates of: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Picpoul Blanc, and Falanghina. The Picpoul Blanc and Falanghina are especially unique as they are orange wines.

Located in the Northern city of Laytonville, way North at 2700 feet of altitude grows our Falanghina.  This is a traditional  white aromatic southern Italian variety grown around the Vesuvius for  thousands of years. This site promotes ripeness of the fruit and maintains a lower sugar concentration with an excellent expression of acidity and minerality.  Our harvest dates ranges between October 14th and October 21st, and our 100 percent whole cluster fermentation lasts 30-35 days to promote color extraction from the white skins of our Falanghina, hence the orange color.

The 2016 Pinot Noir vineyard lies at 1000 feet of altitude at the Southwest portion of Sonoma Mountain bordering the new Petaluma Gap AVA at the Northeastern boarder, in a 25 year old vineyard. This Pinot stays cool throughout the day with fog covering the vineyard in the early mornings, protecting the delicate skin of this variety. With the hot summer in August, we picked early on September 1st at 23 Brix. Acidity retained high, all spontaneous fermentation with native yeast. 5% Whole Cluster, 100% French Oak – 10% New. 13.75% abv. Bright Fruit with Great Structure and Presence of Acidity, with Spicy Core of Red Bright Fruit like Raspberry and Red Cherry.
