Welcome to the #CraftWineLA crowd funding web site. Our goal is to raise enough money to create Los Angeles’ first barrel of craft wine with help from our friends at Saarloos & Sons winery. And who knows, perhaps one day create the first craft winery located right here in our own backyard.
What is Craft Wine? Think of it like craft beer, except it’s wine. Duh. Yes, the term craft is about as over used as “artisan”, “local”, “farmer’s market”, “farm to table”, “nose to tail”, yadda yadda yadda. But it describes what we are trying to do the best. It’s super small production wine, hand crafted right here in el-lay.
In Los Angeles, craft beer has taken off over the past few years. Brew masters, beer makers, breweries, and even a few distillers, are popping up all over So Cal. There are a few “garage” wine makers located up in San Fransisco and surrounding the various wine country areas, but none are dedicated to bringing this movement to the City of Angels. You can’t count Brangelina’s wine, they went up and got all French on us and shit.Tweet
