About the Winemaker
Margin Wines Produces low-intervention wines using grapes from underrepresented regions, vineyards, and varietals. They are part of the growing movement in California to make wines from sustainably farmed vineyards the grapes come from. Much like people living on the 'margins of society,' vineyards can be outcasts too. Margins draws attention to vineyards and varietals throughout northern and central California that find themselves on the margins without the recognition they deserve. Margins Wine is a small winemaking project committed to sustainability and inclusion owned by Megan Bell. Megan lives, ferments, and farms in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
