Fog Monster wines, from Amador County, California (Sierra Foothills), is a project of Andrea and Chris Mullineux, a duo known for their wonderful South African wines. Andrea, originally from California, and Chris have been sourcing unique vineyards in the Sierra Foothills. These vineyards are exposed to the interesting climatic conditions, particularly the fog rolling in from the Pacific Ocean. The wines are esoteric in nature, beautifully balanced and a true reflection of the climatic influence in this region.
Fog Monster’s winemaker, Andrea Mullineux, has been nominated as Wine Enthusiast’s new world winemaker of the year. See full article below.
