In 2015, Mike Sinor opened a clean, sleek, and modern tasting room in Avila beach, one block away from the ocean. A biodynamic farmer through and through, he creates wines that are a living, breathing extension of Bassi Ranch, a southwest-facing vineyard-scape of rolling hills and soil, rich with marine fossils. Sinor’s estate whites–Albarino, Chardonnay, and Pinot Grigio–offer bright tropical fruit notes with great acidity, and his estate reds—Pinot Noir and Syrah—offer dazzlingly potent floral notes and complex minerality.
Ask about the new White Label and Black Label limited-production reserve wines from the winery’s estate Bassi Vineyard, which showcase different styles of the same grape variety from same terroir.
