About the winery

Crafting wine requires patience and the crazy belief that the shortest line drawn between two points may not always be the right one. Take a simple task like fruit-sorting. That's when we meticulously go through all the de-stemmed berries to pick out any under-ripe or bird-damaged fruit, leaves, stems and other MOG (Matter Other than Grapes). During harvest. there comes a point when everyone's exhausted and baskets of grapes keep coming. It's even debatable how much difference sorting will make in the end. That's when the stubborn kicks in.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one having so much fun. We stick to traditional winemaking methods; we ferment our juice in open tanks, do hand-punchdowns around the clock, basket press, and mature the wines in small French oak barrels. The name Stark-Condé is a simple marriage of my wife's family name and my own.

**** Very good 
Stark staring good
Interesting in that they seem to no longer make the Shiraz, or at least don’t call it Shiraz, but rather Syrah? Whatever the reason, the 2002 was quite nice, very fruit forward. Notes of vanilla and dark fruit on the nose, some pepper and a long finish. I got a great deal, perhaps because they were trying to get rid of the Shiraz? Oh well, my gain.
