Meet the Winemakers
Al Carpenter (Aldo)
As a young boy growing up in a Traditional American family with a German, Irish father and an Italian [Calabrese] mother, I always had a passion for European culture, The History, Foods and especially the Wines while spending many summers in Bensonhurst Brooklyn with [Nanny] my Italian Grandmother, Aunt Nancy, Uncle Frankie and Rocco. I watched and enjoyed their process for Foods and Wine Making, I was Always amazed by it all. Then later in life I was finally introduced to Europe, Italy and Portugal, I realized my passion for Wine was what I remembered most about growing up. The studies began as I had many opportunities to work closely with several amazing Wine makers and studied old world as well as modern day methods. This chance to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a Master Wine Maker and partnering with Jorge and to see his passion for his culture, as well as us forming now five partnerships in Portugal, one in Italy and two in California as well as our base Winery in New York, has been truly a dream come true.
WE INVITE YOU TO COME SHARE OUR DREAM
