About Mission Wines

Winemaker Zachary Elfman is a Bay Area native who felt called to Galicia due to its terroir similarity to Northern California. Mission wines are of seriously limited quantities, creating a treat for those who get their hands on them. The wines are unadulterated by chemicals (aside from a bit of sulfur for stability) and hand-made through every step of the vinification -from picking in 18kg cases to being stomped underfoot for the initial crush and gentle punch downs. They are all aged in neutral French oak barrels for as long as they need, with racking kept at a minimum and no filtering. This production is extremely small i.e. 250 bottles made.
