Old World Winery

Darek Trowbridge founded Old World Winery to produce wines naturally and with minimal manipulation. Despite his different last name, Darek is closely related to the Martinellis, a famous California grape growing and winemaking family. And it was his grandfather Lino Martinelli who taught Darek the “old world” style of winemaking and the philosophy that “everything a vintner does in the vineyard and in the winery affects the flavors of the wines.”
