Daughters of Madness - The winemakers of Ava
Besides Ava see all DAUGHTERS OF MADNESS wines.
“The world is large and sometimes overly complicated, but our vision here at D.O.M is quite simple. We look for healthy low intervention fruit and let mother nature do the rest. Our inaugural release of four natural wines were named after our prosterity, which represents something pure and something to rejoice over. Each wine is as different as each of the children represented on our labels. It is our hope that someday one of our children will want to carry on our vision of producing natural wines and living off of the land, like our ancestors did. Cheers, to keeping it slow and simple!” www.dom.wine
