In 1983, Robert Levin and his wife, Lisa Solinas travelled to the Italian island of Sardegna to rediscover Lisa's father’s family. They spent a week with them. One of the things the famiglia told them was how disappointing it was that the family members who went to America seemed to have lost touch with their Italian roots. Bob and Lisa's Italian family said they needed to go back to California and start making wine.
Which they did - and have been doing ever since.
