Posted by: thepinetree on 01/20/2016 12:15 PM
Murphys, CA...Dave Christian is a native of Calaveras county who grew up enjoying the beauty of the Sierra Foothills. He now lives in Arnold with his wife and two small children. They love spending time together exploring the outdoors and creating new things. Dave has had a passion for art since a very young age and majored in Art Education in college. Dave and his wife love to travel, which led them to backpacking through Europe and South America for three months. Unable to find any suitable souvenirs in Patagonia, he created a poster of the Torres Towers when he returned home. This was the first travel print he made in what would eventually turn into a full time career.
Murphys, CA...Black Sheep Winery arrived in Murphys with the 1984 harvest. From that first harvest we produced our 1984 Amador Zinfandel. The wine was styled in a big, bold way like nobody else could do. That's what makes us Black Sheep; we're different from the rest of the flock. We feature small batches of limited release wines handcrafted from high quality grapes grown in Calaveras and Amador Counties. We produce about 2,500 cases of wine per year, specializing in Zinfandels and Rhone varietals.
