Optima, located in picturesque Healdsburg, California,is a small family winery,annually producing 5,000 cases of top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon,Zinfandel,Zinfandel Port, and Petite Sirah with plans to expand into Gewurztraminer in the next few years. The limited production allows - Mike as winemaker, to employ winemaking techniques that larger wineries don''t have time for, such as counter-pressure racking, extended maceration and unfiltered wines. The Optima label made its first appearance in 1984 on 400 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted by Mike and his late wife, Tina. Over the years, Mike worked full time as winemaker for two other wineries,most notably Trefethen in Napa Valley and Field Stone in Alexander Valley.
