A rich and powerful wine that shows great balance of tannin and great acidity. A nose of blackberries, white pepper and spring flowers. A wine that stays light on it’s feet while giving you a long and lasting finish.
“A Tale of Two Dudes” is the dynamic duo of Dylan Pecchenino (Pec) and Keaton Burlington (Burl); Two Stockton and Lodi born dudes with a hope and a dream — and stumbled into their own small wine label.
Dylan and Keaton have Enology degrees from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. They both started working in wine after college and are heavily influenced by their experiences working in various tasting rooms, vineyards and cellars. Today, Dylan and Keaton are lucky enough to source Rhône-style fruit from some premier vineyards in West Paso Robles’ Willow Creek AVA. Their winemaking practices remain as natural as possible, playing with native fermentations, periodic stem inclusion, no fining or filtering, and low sulfur additions. Their goal is minimal impact on the wines to allow the vineyards to showcase themselves and let the beauty of phenomenal farming practices take precedent in the glass.
“Continuing to develop and grow our own style is all part of the ride, and we are stoked about what is on board so far!”
Their wines are delicious, singular, and quirky just like them. At the end of the day, you get what you see: two dudes, their wine, and the journey that ensues. We are proud to release their inaugural wine to the public.
