Winestyr Review

Don't apologize if while drinking this you think, "Jeez...are Solminer's 2018s the best they've ever made?" David's wines thrived in an excellent vintage and there is an energy to this Spear Vineyard that is undeniable. David sources grapes from the lowest, coolest spot of the vineyard so as to preserve the natural zesty acidity in Grüner.

What We Love

  • Certified Organic vineyard
  • Excellent vintage in California

This is yet another incredible effort from one of the Central Coast's premier wineries.

Experience

How it happened was pure serendipity but in 2012, Anna and David deLaski started Solminer Wine to fulfill a dream - to create well-balanced California wine from their local, organically farmed vineyard and express and share their love for Austrian varietals...and for each other. David wanted to shift his experience as a tastemaker in the DJ/electronic music scene after running a boutique record label in Los Angeles for over a decade and focus on creating a boutique wine label. He enjoys wine and music as creative and artistic sense oriented pursuits and is passionately obsessed with both. The micro-production wines are organic and definitely pushing the cutting edge the movement toward lower alcohol, purer wines.
