NICK AND TRUDY STACY ARE BACKED BY DECADES OF INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE AND TIME-EARNED WISDOM, SOURCING FRUIT FROM SOME OF THE MOST EXCEPTIONAL YET IMPOSSIBLE TO-ACCESS VINEYARDS.
We are pairing these rare harvests with the perfect winemaker, each hand-picked with the same discretion as the fruit itself. Tied to no one location, GI, or house style, we create extraordinary wines from unlaundered fruits that lay beyond the reach of most. These are the Clandestine Vineyards. Every piece of the winemaking puzzle has been carefully considered and deftly executed with each wine they craft.
However, knowing who, what, where and when is not enough. The secret to making these wines lies within relationships that take time and trust to forge—something that can't be bought. Our founders, Nick and Trudy, hold the key to these crucial relationships. Over three decades of selling, buying, discovering, and crafting wine are between them. They are the mind, the heart, and the soul of Clandestine Vineyards. They understand great wine and know how to unlock it—with a vision for every vintage that runs from vine to glass.
