45 in stock
Ernst Storm grew up in South Africa and completed his studies at Elsenburg Agricultural School, which is just outside the town of Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. After completing his final year, Ernst worked as a winemaker in the Stellenbosch region and also spent two harvests in the cooler Walker Bay region in South Africa, while consulting on a few smaller projects with his brother Hannes. Ernst wanted to come out to California and got a got working harvest at Firestone where he ended up stayed for 3 years. Storm started with only 6 barrels back in 2006. Since then it has grown and Storm is focused on making classically styled wines from proven sites; and wines with personality of vintage and site, where elegance is favored.
