Winemaker Notes

This fruit-packed, food-friendly red called A Mano (hand-made), entirely hand-crafted from indigenous Primitivo grapes (the original source of Zinfandel, by the way...), expresses the region's quality potential, and the reasons for Mark's Apulian connection.

What you get can only be characterful duo of Primitivo Puglia IGT reds with fruit you can chew on, supple body, fresh acidity: "just the kind of wine the consumer wants to drink, and drink again."

"How does an American end up in Apulia (and why does he stay?)", asks Mark Shannon as he begins to tell his story. Meeting this brilliant wine-maker from California, you are struck by professional and personality alike: Mark's drive, enthusiasm, creativity and expertise are hard to come by in a single individual! Needless to say, the impact of his sensational Apulian red reflects the impact of the man.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
