We are pleased to welcome Winemaker, Mr. Daniel Benton. The word “Croze” is French for the groove in which a wine barrel’s head rests. The croze helps keep the barrel from leaking and adds stability to the barrel itself. As a boutique, fine wine craftsman, Daniel embraces the rich diversity of California’s most prestigious wine growing appellations. He recognizes the age old tradition of terrior and only sources grapes from optimal sites where families take the same care in growing wine as he does in making it.
