About Two Shepherds

California, United States
While our total production is small (~1,500 cases), our offerings are vast. Nicknamed 'insane master of small lots', William crafts about 15 different wines each vintage. All our wines are fermented with native yeast, aged on the lees in neutral barrels, and are minimally racked. We focus on uncommon varietals, often from the only few acres in California.
