Labor of Love
Many people express a passion for wine, but Heather and Jason Altepeter turned their passion into a reality with wines that reflect their love for the craft and the city they call home. Putting down roots in Temecula led the pair to using grapes grown exclusively in this renowned viticultural area.
THE WINEMAKER’S ART
For many, art is merely a piece of work that can be viewed and touched. However, for artisan and winemaker, Mark Horvath, wine, his art of choice, is something that should be tasted, consumed and experienced.
Horvath partnered with Heather and Jason Altepeter in 2016 to put his experience building successful wines to work for the Sweet Oaks and Sol de Luz labels. Working closely with the couple, Horvath is currently bottling Sweet Oaks Wine’s first five varietals (Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Viognier, Malbec, and a Cuvee) for the estate’s inaugural vintage.
