Winemaker, Spoto Family Wines
Stuart Spoto learned the art of winemaking from his father Henry Spoto Jr. and together they have been making family wines for over 30 years. This family collaboration has greatly influenced Stuart to create his ultra-boutique winery (producing less than 500 cases per year) and perfect his Oakville Cabernet and Bordeaux blends.

Two things really, good grapes and cleanliness. This is a very minimalistic approach but solid advice given to me by my father years ago.
