Somewhat under the radar, Graham Tatomer’s wines are some of California’s best for Riesling and Gruner Veltliner. Somms like Cara and Simi have often been duped into calling these wines Austrian in blind tastings because Graham’s handle on nuance and terroir is deep. 

Winemaker: Graham Tatomer

Farming: Sustainable with Organic Practices

Varieties: 80% Grüner Veltliner, 20% Dry Riesling

Terroir: This wine is a blend of Kick-on Ranch, John Sebastiano, Paragon, Oliver’s, and La Estancia vineyards.

Vinification: Fermented in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes:  Richer, more fruit-driven wine. Stone fruit flavors often associated with Riesling, nice minerality, and some slight botrytis notes oft en  expressed as honey, or pollen. 


"Hinter der Mauer is a term that has a special meaning in the village of Loiben where I

worked with Weingut Knoll. It refers to the space on a terraced vineyard between a row of vines and the wall to the next level. This row is often extra narrow and exceedingly difficult to work. There is a sense of being squished. But it often produces some of the best tasting fruit do the radiant heat from the stone wall next to it. I learned of this term one jovial evening with the Knoll family. We were all sitting around the table enjoying wines and they were teaching me some Austrian dialect terms that they were both proud of and entertained by. Hinter der Mauer is not only Austrian but distinctly a “Loiben Village” term. It would not even have the same meaning in other areas of the Wachau." -Graham Tatomer
