La Onda

La Onda

Following a winding path through Argentina, Chile, working at Scholium Project, and finally finding his way to North Yuba County, Dani Rozman connected with veteran winemaker Gideon Beinstock (Clos Saron, Renaissance) and thus was born La Onda. Though it literally translates to “the wave”, La Onda is also slang for “the vibe”, and Dani’s wines are all about capturing this sense, the essence of a time and place. Using low-intervention methods, native fermentations, neutral oak, and minimal sulfur, he does nothing that could obscure the terroir.

His first couple vintages came from some of the oldest Cinsault vines in Lodi and were made at the Clos Saron winery, however since then he has turned his focus toward North Yuba County. Along with Clos Saron and Frenchtown Farms, Dani is intent on developing and helping to established this long overlooked terroir. From helping to manage and revitalize the Renaissance Vineyards, Texas Hill Road Vineyard, to eventually establishing vines of his own, La Onda is part of the very exciting emergence of North Yuba.

It is an impressive start for a young winemaker, and just the beginning of things to come.
