Central Coast native Russell From took an unconventional path to becoming a winemaker. An Agriculture major from Cal Poly- San Luis Obispo, he slid into the winery scene nearly by accident. It wasn't long before he met his eventual business partner, McPrice Myers (of Barrel 27) and discussions of making wine together, and separately, began in earnest. Russell's label, named in honor of his grandfather, was launched with the 2001 vintage and immediately captured the attention of critics. He uses world-class Central Coast vineyards such as Larner and White Hawk to produce Syrah, Grenache, Roussanne and Viognier. Production is approximately 1000 cases.
