Wind Gap Wines - Sonoma county


Platinum Plus! selection - 92 Points, Robert Parker

Wind Gap Wines is an interesting new project, founded by Pax and Pamela Mahle
in 2006. Focusing on making honest, authentic, and compelling wines from
specially selected vineyard sites, the Mahles have combed the state of California
to gather a collection of some of the most exciting vineyards for producing
the kinds of grapes they love best – Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley,
Chardonnay from Chalone (Monterey County), Grenache from Paso Robles,
and Syrah from the cool and windy Sonoma Coast. They found that each of
their select vineyard sites were planted along or directly influenced by one “wind
gap” or another, hence the fitting name of their newest entity, Wind Gap Wines.
Pax Mahle learned to love wine while working in restaurants in Nantucket and
gained further appreciation after a trip to France’s Burgundy and Rhône Valley
regions in the late nineties. He and his wife Pamela then moved to Sonoma
County where they pursued a future in the wine industry, and later founded Pax
Wines in 2000. It was through Pax Wines that Pax Mahle began to experiment
with vineyard designated Syrahs and really developed his own world-class style.
Today, he continues his dream, crafting limited production, vineyard-designated
wines for his latest up-and-coming venture Wind Gap Wines. Enjoy!
