Palmina husband and wife team Steve and Chrystal Clifton use old world methods with new world attitude to produce wines of distinction from Italian varieties. A great deal of their efforts are placed in the vineyard, where they are closely involved with all development and growing aspects of many Santa Barbara County vineyards producing Italian varieties. Purists at heart, the wines produced by the Cliftons are unique. All white wines are vinified in stainless steel, allowing the wines to show their incredible perfumes and aromas, while maintaining a lean mineral palate that complements food. Red wines are barrel aged in mostly aged oak barrels to allow the wines to demonstrate their beautiful flavor nuances and achieve a texture that is balanced in both. Keeping their production small allows them to continue their strong commitment
and zeal for creating high quality Italian varieties from Santa Barbara County.
