Established in 2005, EFESTE (pronounced F-S-T) is an acronym for the winery’s original three founders: Ferrelli, Smith, and Taylor. Their idea to make 2 barrels of wine based on the Ferrelli annual tradition of winemaking has since evolved into a family label.
In 2007 EFESTE planted three vineyards owned by Kevin and Angela Taylor in order to produce estate bottlings.
In 2012, Peter Devison joined the team as winemaker, immediately getting accolades for his aromatic white wines. We are committed to crafting wines with minimalist techniques incorporating native fermentation and low oxidation. The natural yeast within the grapes creates flavors unique to each particular vineyard. We encourage character; great wines should have personality.
