Locations by Dave Phinney [French] Red Blend
The idea behind Locations is actually quite simple: to make the best possible wine from a given Location. When it comes down to it, we all know that great wine starts in the vineyard, so why not seek out the best vineyards regardless of appellation, varietal, or vintage?
Dave Phinney created this portfolio to explore the possibility of what could happen when all of the stereotypical constraints and regional rules were pushed aside, allowing him to focus on one task: making great wine.
The label concept was born when Dave was in France and a taxi pulled up with the very distinctive “F” sticker on their license plate. It sent his mind racing with the possibilities…recalling his experiences getting to know vineyards and their caretakers all over, and leaving him excited to expand this network to include even more Locations.
