Freelander is the creation of Mike O’Connell, who seems to have the Midas touch in creating value driven brands that have great success. Mike, and winemaker Larry Levin, are responsible for bringing brands to the market that many of you are probably familiar with - Pavillon, Grayson Cellars, Hanging Vine and Block Nine. We’ve stayed in contact with Mike over the years as we knew there would be an opportunity to work together at some point. The Freelander wines are made to be immediately appealing and user friendly. They are wines that can easily be stacked in retail and used as BTG or banquet pours. The grapes for the wines are selected from several sources throughout California and made in St Helena by Larry Levin. Larry has over 30 years of experience making wines in Napa for Quintessa and Turnbull. He takes great pride in producing wines that are driven by their varietal character and have balance, all while providing tremendous value.
