Sine Qua Non

If you run Sine Qua Non through the usual search engine, you soon learn that it is a Latin legal term

The specialist wine magazine Falstaff translates it loosely as INDISPENSABLE. As far as the Sine Qua Non winery is concerned, we agree with this interpretation!

The story

Sine Qua Non is far more than just a winery. Sine Qua Non is THE cult winery from California. Sine Qua Non is the epitome of a boutique winery. Sine Qua Non is the figurehead of the Rhône Rangers movement.

The producers Manfred and Elaine Krankl are emigrants from Upper Austria. After Manfred had also been highly successful with a high-end bakery and a top Italian restaurant, he embarked on the adventure of fine wine cultivation in 1994. Since then, blockbuster after blockbuster has been strung together like pearls on a necklace.

The grapes for Sine Qua Non's mystical wines come from the company's own Eleven Confessions Vineyard, but are also bought in from other top vineyards.

The wines from near Ojai are extremely rare. Just 4000 cases are brought onto the market each year.

Sine Qua Non is a Parker superstar! No fewer than 21 (!) wines have the full 100 Parker points to their name.

The Wine

Manfred and Elaine Krankl focus primarily on the typical Rhône grape varieties. From these they elixir the finest white, rosé, red and sweet wines.

The wines stored in the barrels are cherished and cared for. Like a child, each barrel has its own name. And of course each vintage also has its own name. These are often mysterious and mystical, such as Just For The Love With It, The Inaugural or Syrah Stockholm Syndrome.

But not only the names are unmistakable on Sine Qua Non. The labels and bottle shapes are also new every year. The wines from Sine Qua Non are a total work of art.

The sweet wines, which bear the additional designation Mr K, are produced in close collaboration with Austria's sweet wine grandfather Alois Kracher.

Every bottle of Sine Qua Non is an absolutely unique experience.
