Our journey kind of happens in this way: Stumble across a one-acre block of Vermentino that rocks? Let the undertow of creativity take you into the depths of pure bliss. Capture a small segment of Rincon Valley Syrah and Petite Sirah? Let the dark art and magic of blending varieties stir the soul. Seize an eight-acre block of 100-year-old vine Charbono? Let history and decades of old growth ignite the cinder of your imagination. Cast a net into the unknown waters of New Zealand Pinot Noir? Let the Southern Cross be your guide into the rare air of growing in one of the harshest environments on the planet.
We have no fear. Only an ambitious drive to let our spirit follow an uncharted path into momentous winemaking experiences.
"I have always sought the unconventional path in my craft. Perhaps my want for exploration can be traced to my Scandinavian bloodline and the ancestral lineage of fearless frontiersmen. Marauder charters the unknown course in winemaking, breaking the mold of tradition, producing bold, uncommon wines "
