Winemaker Steve Hagata produces wines in a fruit forward, approachable style that is delightful with food. He makes several single varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Riesling. Additionally, he produces a Port-style wine and 2 sweet wines called Luscious Lips (red) and Sweet Loretta (white).
The Falkner Amante is a red cuvee made in the “Super Tuscan” style. A marriage of Italy and France, it is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Hagata also makes a Meritage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
The property also contains a gift shop, beautiful picnic area, and a restaurant named Pinnacle. Chefs Dennis van Rumund and Cory Chung specialize in Mediterranean food that goes great with Falkner’s wines.
