About This Producer


Manfred Krankl, an Austrian immigrant and Los Angeles restaurateur turned winemaker, is a reclusive and maniacally hard-working proprietor. His back-alley Ventura winery, dubbed the "garage d'or," has been described as "a junkyard (or the first or second level of hell)" and compared to a set from the movie "Mad Max" by Robert Parker. A true believer in radical viticulture, Krankl has worked with excessively low yields and maintains his winery and vineyards with meticulous attention to detail.

Since the debut "Queen of Spades" in 1994, original artwork and increasingly creative wordplay has adorned the label of each SQN wine. The wine itself has become a benchmark for Rhone varieties not just in California, but in the world. With 100-point scores in double digits, Robert Parker raves, "...the Grenache is the finest in the New World, the Syrah begs to be compared with the greatest of France, California, and Australia, and the white wine blends assembled by Manfred Krankl are as sumptuous and complex as the world's finest Chardonnays..." For all collectors, and particularly those that love Rhone-styled wines, SQN truly is something indispensable.

Wine Varietal: Marsanne


This white variety is grown worldwide and produces full-bodied, heavily aromatic wines. Typically grown in France's northern Rhone region, Marsanne is the primary grape of the white wines of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, and Saint Joseph. While wines made from Marsanne can be dull in their youth, when produced well they have light, fruity, and perfumed characteristics, as well as the ability to age superbly. Outside of France, small amounts of this variety can be found in Australia, Switzerland, and the United States. Typical descriptors for Marsanne include spice, pear, melon, honeysuckle, nuts and quince.
