In 2010 we started our quest for a super-premium vineyard to produce a very exclusive wine. We wanted a wine suitable for serving to wine consumers who demand high quality wines. After finding our vineyard in the Napa Valley, we focused our attention on every detail. We hand-pick our grapes to select bunches at the perfect ripeness. We purchased only the best quality wine barrels to age our wines. We bottle our wines in the strongest, most durable glass – with long, all-natural corks. Most importantly, we used the best winemaking techniques available in order to produce this extremely incredible wine.
Winemaker, Angelo Pero: Angelo has been making wines since 1993. He has an incredible fascination with old world winemaking techniques but is inspired to utilize cutting edge new-age winemaking techniques to master his craft. “Winemaking has come a long way, and it makes sense to keep up with modern winemaking techniques.” In today’s wine business, there is little room for mediocrity. The push for better wines is insatiable.
Angelo’s preferred winemaking style allows for development of intense aromas, derived naturally from the vineyard and grapes. The use of both modern and old world winemaking techniques allows for the best of both worlds. The end-goal is to produce the best wine possible.
Angelo started making BACKSTAGE Wines in 2012. He now produces a selection of super-premium wines from incredible vineyards in the Napa Valley. Each of Angelo’s wines are single-vineyard and single varietal. As far as his winemaking, Angelo says he will never be done learning – it is a true passion that has been developed over the last 20 years.
