John Eppler spent 30 years in Northern California where he had his own brand, John Robert Eppler Wines! He also spent time working at Robert Mondavi and Rosenblum Cellars, with two of the more innovative wine makers in California history. He made his way to Southern California to "retire" but his love for winemaking pulled him back and Forgotten Barrel is the lucky winner! John brings his sense of independence making original choices when selecting vineyards and choosing winemaking methods. John's style is making full and richly flavored wines. They are big and bold which accentuates the terroir of San Diego county. We are excited to have John at the helm as we enjoy our 2nd harvest from San Diego county fruit. Last year we made 2 barrels of Muscat of Alexandria, the grape from our home vineyard.
