Winemaker Antoine Favero has a colorful personal history. He was born in the Champagne region of France, but at an early age moved with his family to a Peruvian coastal fishing village in South America. When Antoine was nine years old, he and his family relocated to Northern California’s wine country, and the rest is history! Antoine quickly developed a passion for the art and science of creating exceptional wines in Wine Country.
While attending the University of California at Davis, Antoine discovered enology and quickly developed a passion for the art and science of creating exceptional wines. He further honed his winemaking skills by working at several premier wineries, specializing in Bordeaux and Rhone varietals and Zinfandel. Over the last five years Antoine has become literally the talk of the town for his flavorful and unique Zinfandels.
As a winemaker, Antoine believes wines are “nurtured” rather than “produced.” His wines express the unique varietal and terroir characteristics of each vineyard site. There is no one more in tune with his Zinfandels, his wines than Antoine. Each is a unique piece of work and tribute to the vineyard and grapes used to make the wine.
With hundreds of gold medal awards, and numerous 90+ ratings; Antoine’s wines are flavorful and completely unique.
