Since 1999, Fäsi Estate has set out to create a Syrah vineyard in the San Joaquin Valley unlike any other in the region. The 42-acre vineyard is the culmination of a very simple concept: create an organically certified vineyard that marries the long traditions of wine grape growing with being good stewards of the land. Based on my last visit, they have done an excellent job in their endeavors. Fäsi produces some wonderful Syrah’s but don’t forget to try the Malbec too!
