“One sip of California Pinot Noir was all it took. My life as I knew it would change forever,” explains owner & winemaker Andrew P. Vingiello.
A.P. VIN was established in 2003 to fulfill the dream of its owner, Andrew P. Vingiello. After taking his first sip of artisanal California pinot noir he set out to learn as much as he could about this unique style of bold, complex wine. In 2003 Andrew worked his first wine harvest and found that his passion for handcrafted wine extended beyond just consuming it. He also enjoyed the challenge of making it. Andrew created the very first vintage of A.P.VIN in 2003 from Garys__ Vineyard. While only 150 cases were produced, it was enough to win the acclaim of well-known publications. The name A.P. VIN originates from Andrew’s name (Andrew P. Vingiello) and the logo represents his signature on each bottle produced.
While managing to keep his day job during production of the first few vintages of A.P. VIN, it was in 2005 that Andrew decided to fully dedicate himself and his career to his passion for creating unique wines. Shortly thereafter, Andrew moved his production and winemaking from Lompoc to San Francisco, where he could tend to the wines closer to his home.
Today, A.P. VIN produces approximately 2,000 cases of vineyard-designate pinot noir and is focused on making wines of the highest quality, which Andrew believes starts in the vineyard. From the vineyard and row locations to the farming style of each grower, every element adds nuances and subtleties that result in a superior wine.
A.P.VIN specializes in handcrafted, vineyard-designate pinot noir, each bottling offered in very limited production releases, and each showcasing the flavors and nuances of the various prized vineyard sources and distinct vintages.
