Dan and Alix share a love for adventure and travel, both having logged countless miles visiting many countries and learning about local customs and cultures along the way. Alix has lived in both Germany and France and is fluent in both languages. Dan has spent the majority of his life in the agriculture industry. Through their various journeys, they’ve developed a love of wine and especially enjoy finding small boutique wineries and rare or unusual varietals from around the world. Dan enjoys learning about growing and production techniques used in the many wine regions of the world. Alix enjoys experiencing the various styles and varietals found throughout the world. It seems only natural that both would end up settling in Carmel California and own a boutique winery of their own. De Tierra Vineyards reflects Dan and Alix’s passion for small production, premium quality wines that bridge new world techniques and old world style.
