What is Dark Horse?
So why is Dark Horse winning with wine drinkers and wine experts everywhere?
Modern winemaking comes with an arsenal of tools and technology, but nothing will turn mediocre grapes into a winning wine. So, they started with one of the world’s best growing regions, California, and built strong partnerships with hundreds of grape growers across the state. Working closely with them all year long, walking the vineyards with them and tasting grapes on the vine. When harvest arrives, they have a first pick of those grapes from over 400 growers.
With the help of head winemaker, Beth Liston, they've taken some of the most powerful high-end winemaking techniques and tools in modern use and put them to work for Dark Horse
Whether it's extended maceration, which allows their red wines to grow plush and deliciously complex through longer contact with their grape skins, or the way that they ferment and age them on oak for greater depth and flavor, it all comes back to bringing out the best in their grapes.
Dark Horse Wines won’t be satisfied until every bottleis the best that it can be. That's why they taste their wines over 100 times from vine to bottle, making sure every varietal produced reaches its full potential before it makes its way to you.
