OUR PRODUCERS: Old World Winery

Darek Trowbridge has made wine at Old World Winery for 20 years. He sources from old families he knows and respects, many working organically and biodynamically. He is a deep believer in the concept of re-purposing and his vineyard choices reflect this.

Darek primarily works in the greater Sonoma Coast and the Russian River, althought he will head Northward here and there if there are great vineyard sources to be found.

Darek: “All of our wines are fermented with native yeasts only. We add nothing to the wines except for a small amount of sulphur which protects the wine during the ageing process. We believe letting the wine make itself is the only way to truly express the vineyard through the wine.”

Darek ferments his wines with native yeasts in stainless. The wines are then racked to French oak barrels. Darek tends to like to work in new French oak for elevage. He then purposefully chooses to bottle early and let the wine continue its natural elevage in bottle for quite some time before release to market.
