' Galatea Effect - Enthralling, Intellectual, Small Lot Wines from the Finest Vineyards Across California.
We set-out to make world-class wines that would rival the best. We produce enthralling "uber cuvées" from an assemblage of coveted, ultra-premium vineyards across California, with a focus on Syrah, Pinot Noir, and assorted Rhone varietals.
I’m an entrepreneur at heart. I find great pleasure in the ideal and challenge of creating something from nothing, harnessing the power of self-confidence (aka "the Galatea Effect"), hard work and desire.
