Lusu Cellars is a new project from winemaker David Teixeira, focusing on heritage California and Rhône grape varieties. David sources exclusively from old, dry-farmed and sustainable family-owned vineyards. Winemaking is as minimalist as possible to try and extract the essence of each of these special vineyards: indigenous yeasts are used, punchdowns are by hand, only older barrels are used so as not to mark the wines, and there is no fining, filtration or other additions. The goal is to make wines that are truly "Californian" and show a sense of place and time for each of their unique provenances. These are exciting and honest wines from a young winemaker that will be one to watch!
