We had a wonderful time shooting with Idlewild Winery and owner, Sam Bilbro, recently. Bilbro was named Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers of 2017 and specializes in making hard-to-find, Piedmontese-style wines like Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Cortese, Arneis and Barbera.
The bottles are so beautifully designed and taste even more amazing.
“Idlewild has a relatively concise aim within a broad context: to produce wines of exceptional balance and beauty. It is a journey to pursue Italy’s Piedmont in the elevated hills of Mendocino County, and to find the sides of these varieties that are intriguing, delicious, and haunting.
Each wine is unique and treated as such, though the common thread is balancing depth and seriousness with vibrancy and joy. Emphasis is on the vineyard followed by minimalist winemaking techniques. While not dogmatic in practice, an honest and sustainable approach is fundamental in making wines of purity.”
