Wine Week with Fundamental Wines at Gale's starts Tuesday, September 3


Growing up in Bakersfield and racing Go Karts, Joey's first experience with wine took place when he was just 12 years old and his soccer team toured a winery while taking part in a tournament in Bordeaux. Joey vividly recalls the chill of the old caves and the aromas of wines fermenting in barrel. From that moment on he knew he wanted to be a winemaker. While Tensley and its reputation continue to grow, based in Los Olivos, garnering Wine Spectator Top 100 scores, Joey remains true to his original philosophy. "Get out of the way and let the vineyards speak for itself."
