The Greek toast "Levendi" acknowledges a hard day's labor and achievement. It celebrates the fields, the rain and the sun that nurtures our special grapes. Essentially, it's a toast "to celebrate life." And it is the philosophy on which we craft our wine.
In 2000, James and David Gianulias began formulating a plan to produce a limited-edition premier wine to be introduced to the general market. Their quest for knowledge in the field was grand in scope and, before long, they had developed a keen understanding of wine production. They learned many of the intricacies of the business by accompanying experts involved in all facets of business as they conducted their duties. How does climate and soil condition affect crop? When is the optimum time for harvesting and crushing grapes? How long should fermentation last and under which conditions? What role does temperature play in the end product? What can be done to add structure and counteract reduction? How does the type of barrel the wine is stored in affect its flavor?
Armed with this knowledge and a passion for producing the best wine possible, the team recruited Alison Green Doran, who brought a lifetime of experience. Mrs. Doran was mentored by America's most influential winemaker André Tchellistcheff. By combining their respective talents, the team went about the painstaking processing of developing the ten-row, private select, single vineyard designate, 100-percent pure Cabernet Sauvignon. The result of this process is a wine that has taken the industry by storm — "Levendi".
Today, Levendi Winery, has produced five different labels of Cabernet Sauvignon, two of Pinot Noirs, one Syrah, five of Chardonnays, and most recently the brand came out with a refreshing Rosé of Pinot Noir with is harvested from the family estate vineyards. Levendi has received many accolades over the years, and the brand is carried in most states throughout the U.S.
