This means that we keep our overhead low and pass the savings on to the consumer, we are able to do this because we maintain control over every aspect of our business.  Our small staff consists mostly of family who love what they do.  We do not pour tons of money into expensive advertising and promotional campaigns. We seek out the best fruit at the best prices and grow our own grapes in five different vineyard sites to maintain consistency and uncompromising quality.

Owner / Winemaker / Grower: Mike & Lorene Kuimelis

Mike and Lorene Kuimelis have been growing reserve designate grapes for noted wineries in the Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys of Sonoma County since the late 1970’s with roughly eighty acres under vine.  They passed their enthusiasm and knowledge of wine and vineyards on to their son Mike Jr. who started the next chapter of this story by producing the first wines under the Mantra label.  The origin of Mantra Wines began with a single barrel of wine made by Mike Jr. in a garage from Mike Sr.’s grapes – one barrel led to two barrels and so forth until the popularity of the wine outpaced it’s production.  At this point Mike made a decision to abandon his applications to medical school and made a business of making wine full time.  Mantra Wines is a collaborative effort between father and son – Mike Sr. grows the grapes and Mike Jr. makes the wines and runs the day-to-day operations of the small winery with his wife Dez.  Our first commercial release was in 2000 with just a few hundred cases of Cabernet Sauvignon – Mantra is now distributed in over 15 states and Canada.  True to our roots – we remain a boutique winery that produces hand-crafted wines of limited production levels but no longer made in the garage.

 

Press & Award

Proprietary Red Ratings

  • Vintage 2001: 90 - The Wine Advocate - Robert M. Parker, Jr. - 2-28-05 #157 "The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2001 Proprietary Red from Dry Creek Valley offers a sexy, ripe nose of black currants, cherries, and a touch of vanilla in the background.  Hedonistic smoky, full bodied, voluptuously-textured flavors emerge from this fleshy effort

Revelations Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Alexander Valley Ratings

  • Vintage 2003: 91 - Robert Parker - 12/06 "A knock-out effort, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Revelations offers aromas of graphite, blackberries, cassis, spice, and toasty oak in its rich, full-bodied, concentrated personality. The tannins are silky, and the acidity is adequate, but unobtrusive. It, too, should drink well for 10-15 years.

  • Vintage 2001: 91 - The Wine Advocate - Robert M. Parker, Jr. - 2-28-05 #157 "The 2001 Revelations Reserve (primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot includd in the blend) exhibits a similar dense ruby/purple color along with medium to full body, and attractive notes of loamy soil. black currants, kirsch, licorice, and vanilla.  With more structure, acidity, and vibrancy than its sibling (2001 Proprietary Red Dry Creek 90 pnts), this big, dense, delineated 2001 should age nicely for 8-10 years"

Old Vines Reserve Zinfandel Ratings

  • Vintage 2008: 90 points - The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker

  • Vintage 2004: 89 - The Wine Advocate - Robert M. Parker, Jr. - 6-30-06 #165 "The top wine of this trio is the 2004 Zinfandel Old Vines Reserve (15.9% alcohol) includes 6% Petite Sirah in the blend.  A deep ruby color is accompanied by a sumptuous bouquet of road tar, briery fruit, forest floor, and spice.  This powerful, rich, full-bodied Zin is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years."

  • Vintage 2002: 90 - The Wine Advocate - Robert M. Parker, Jr. - 2-28-05 #157 "Revealing a deeper, more saturated ruby color as well as an earthier, more primordial nose, the 2002 Zinfandel Reserve offers copious quantities of raspberry and cherry fruit as well as a medium to full-bodied finish"

  • Vintage 2009:Gold Medal - Sonoma County Harvest Fair - 11/2011

  • Vintage 2005:93 points - Exceptional - Wine and Spirits Magazine - 9/0This is a substantial Zin, building its muscle on black cherry-scented fruit and mineral tannin, without a hint of jamminess. It's fresh, bright and floral straight through, with savory notes of pipe tobacco to contrast the higher tones. Decant a bottle for suckling pig.
