Lorenzo Galifano: Mulvane wines.

Position:LATINO LEADERS CELLAR - Brief article - Product/service evaluation

AFTER 25 YEARS of corporate life, Lorenzo Califano was looking for something to do. Raised by a traditional Italian family, where they make their own wine, cook and reunite with friends, he decided to head for Napa Valley and make wine. It took him one year to find a partner and the right fruit to make a "high level, new world, but balanced and sophisticated like the old world wine". He had fun, met great people and after some time discovered he had found his passion. Under the MULVANE label he scored 93 Points!

He now bottles five different labels; three Cabernet Sauvignon, one Bordeaux Style blend and a Syrah, priced on the $30.00 range and all are fantastic.

"We work with what Mother Nature gives us each year and try to make the best wine with the best fruit we can get."
