It was through working in the hospitality industry that pushed Sam Bilbro into making his own wines. Having been brought up with a passion for tasting and vineyards, it was his interest in Piedmonte varieties that led him to his first production. Sourcing the majority of grapes from Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino County, Idlewild has full oversight of the farming and practices a minimalist and natural approach. Located in a concrete warehouse that has been turned into a winery, it reflects their aim to produce honest and simple wine, eschewing all sense of grandiosity.
