Through the twists and turns of life, José Miguel Sotomayor and Luca Hodgkinson came to be great friends. Two experienced winemakers sharing a fierce fervor for the vine. Both seeking something more from their careers, they decided to get back to the roots of what made them live for wine in the first place: the pleasure of sharing. And so, Wildmakers was born. The name wasn’t necessarily an “aha moment,” rather it was developed through philosophizing and defining what kind of wine they would make. Wild. Not uncultivated or crazy, but wild as in natural expression. The state of nature at its finest. Makers. José Miguel and Luca, two talented winemakers leaving behind mass production to get back to the basics.
