Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

Central Coast, California

When we speak of Central Coast, CA were including numerous diverse regions from Santa Cruz down through Santa Barbara counties. This encompasses smaller areas such as Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, Monterey AVA, Paso Robles AVA, Santa Maria Valley AVA, Santa Ynez Valley AVA, and Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Central Coast is responsible for many great value wines from a multitude of grape varietals depending on the climate within the specific designated areas. From the coastal AVA’s with influence from the fog and cooling effects, you will find Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The inland AVA’s are much warmer, like Paso Robles, so look here for outstanding Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel, or Rhône-style blends.

“A Tale of Two Dudes” is the dynamic duo of Dylan Pecchenino (Pec) and Keaton Burlington (Burl); Two Stockton and Lodi born dudes with a hope and a dream — and stumbled into their own small wine label.

Dylan and Keaton have Enology degrees from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. They both started working in wine after college and are heavily influenced by their experiences working in various tasting rooms, vineyards and cellars. Today, Dylan and Keaton are lucky enough to source Rhône-style fruit from some premier vineyards in West Paso Robles’ Willow Creek AVA. Their winemaking practices remain as natural as possible, playing with native fermentations, periodic stem inclusion, no fining or filtering, and low sulfur additions. Their goal is minimal impact on the wines to allow the vineyards to showcase themselves and let the beauty of phenomenal farming practices take precedent in the glass.

“Continuing to develop and grow our own style is all part of the ride, and we are stoked about what is on board so far!”

Their wines are delicious, singular, and quirky just like them. At the end of the day, you get what you see: two dudes, their wine, and the journey that ensues. We are proud to release their inaugural wine to the public.
