In 2016, Dan Marioni went to the Coturri Winery, a historic wine making gem in Glen Ellen, to see what harvest was all about and he essentially never left. Dan began working with Nic Coturri, Tony's son, making wines under the Sonoma Mtn Winery label. The duo created a philosophy that honors the new and the old world, while being uncompromising about additions and subtractions in the winery. This challenge blooms a variety of wines and styles that lean into each vintage and work uniquely with each site. In 2019, Dan decided to move on from Sonoma Mtn Winery and launched Marioni Wine. Before catching the wine bug, Dan graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in mechanical engineering and worked at Tesla for about 5 years. Sonoma has been his family’s roots for four generations. It's said that he also received a bachelors in natural wine from Ruby Wine Company in San Francisco, where he continues to frequent whenever possible. A lighter rosé with freshness! (Marioni)

The same fruit from 2019 with less time on the skins makes this a fresh light rosé that's smashable and ready to roll out for the 2021 resurgence. Estate fruit, nice acid, sexy.
