CESAR TOXQUI moved to Mendocino County from Mexico when he was just sixteen years old. His first job (in the wine industry) was tying down grape vines at the famous Fetzer Vineyards. Little did he know that it was the beginning of a very exciting journey eventually leading him to create his own wine label. Under the tutelage of distinguished winemaker Jesse Tidwell, Cesar gained a deep love for winemaking.
Continuing as Cellar Master for Brutocao Cellars, Cesar began to study the art of grape growing. Working full-time and attending school evenings and weekends he completed his senior thesis on organically grown grapes.
Cesar strongly believes that fine wine begins with fine grapes. Individually selected grapes combined with Cesar’s love of winemaking produces a new hue of fine wines for all to enjoy.
