Made from the same Sonoma Mountain AVA fruit as last year’s Seas & Desist (IYKYK). Each year this fruit has impressed us with its minerality, structure and balanced acid.

Dan Marioni - Owner/Winemaker
In 2016, Dan 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. Sonoma Mtn Winery closed up shop in 2019 and Dan launched Marioni Wine. Before catching the wine bug, Dan graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in mechanical engineering. Sonoma has been his family’s roots for five 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
