Details

A chance encounter with a glass of Condrieu at age 24 cemented founder John Alban’s career path in producing Rhone varietals. Armed with a Master’s Degree in Enology from UC Davis, Alban headed to France to apprentice anywhere he could, from Beaujolais to Provence. Returning home, he became a champion of Rhone varietals and Alban Vineyards in Edna Valley on the California Central Coast has provided a large portion of the cuttings needed to see California’s Viognier and Syrah acreage increase significantly.
