The Producer: Gearhead Wines
Gearhead Wines is the brainchild of Craig West and this is his story as told by the man himself.
"I grew up in Orange County, California, playing in the open fields picking oranges, avocados, blackberries, pomegranates, tomatoes, walnuts, and trees and eating them. The love of the land came at an early age for me and it has been an easy transition into the vineyard."
"My wine journey started harvest 2016 when I met Noel Diaz of Purity Wine. One evening Noel asked me if I would like to jump into a 48 fermenter and tread. Thrilled I climbed in and that was when it I fell in love with winemaking. I made my first vintage that year in my garage; it was a great experience stumbling along, learning, and growing, always trying to stay humble."
