In 1902 Carlo Cardella immigrated from Marlia, a small town in Italy outside of Lucca. He brought with him old world secrets that have been passed on to his children and theirs.
Their philosophy is that wine is an extension of the climate from which the grapes are grown and the soils from which they are rooted. By fusing old world secrets with new world technologies, they believe they are able to make wines that are truly unique and unprecedented in the San Joaquin Valley.
"I truly believe that by taking measures in the vineyard, along with good wine making practices, we can produce superb wines comprable to anywhere else in the world. Myself, along with other winemakers in the Central Valley know that great wines are made in the winery, but start in the vineyard."- Nathan Cardella
Guest at wedding Metalhavok, Fresno Although the venue is lovely the attention to detail had a lot to be desired. During the ceremony the chairs were to close. The aisle that the wedding party went down was too narrow. The Bride and her father could barely walk side by side. They failed to supply soap in the bathroom and only had toilet covers in one stall. They failed to replenish the water pitchers on the tables. They did however, make sure that their staff was feed with the food that was paid for by the Brides family. And this is just a few things that I saw.
