Vines were first planted in 1997, as a joint venture between the Semler and DeJoria Families. At that time, there were 14 acres of Cabernet and Merlot. There are now 85 acres of vines with 9 varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Mourvedre, Grenache, Viognier, Malbec.
PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION
The Semler Label wines are all grown on the ranch in Malibu. The grapes are processed in San Luis Obispo by a company called C2. Our winemaker is named Kevin Law. Once bottled, it is stored in North Hollywood or distributed by Wine Direct from Paso Robles.
