About The Estate:

Four Corners Wine was introduced to Tom Futo and Futo Wines after proudly representing winemaker Jason Exposto and Jessica Futo's He-li-an-thus since 2017. We’re incredibly excited and very proud to have joined in partnership with them as their UK importer, bringing their stunning wines to the UK for the first time.

Futo Wines began in 2002 when Tom and Kyle Futo purchased Oakford Vineyards, a 40 acre property with 7 acres of vineyard established in the 80’s. In 2004, an adjoining 117 acre parcel was added to the property, of which 6 acres were planted to vineyard under the direction of David Abreu and winemaker Mark Aubert.
 
Next, architect Howard Backen was called upon to design the stunning winery. Howard was previously tasked with designing George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch and Disney’s Burbank Sound Studio, and had cast his creative flair across Napa Valley. Of particular note, Harlan Estate, BOND Estate and, most recently, PROMONTORY wineries.

 

Futo Wines' current winery was completed in time to receive the 2008 harvest. Also that year, Jason Exposto was hired to manage the day-to-day winemaking, and, in 2010, he took full control of all winemaking responsibilities. Late in 2011, the Futos completed the purchase of a property in the eastern hills of Stags Leap District. This 40 acre property included a 9 acre Cabernet vineyard planted in 1986.

 

Facts:

Winemaker Jason Exposto mastered his trade working in his native New Zealand, Margaret River in Australia, Château La Mondotte in St. Emilion and Abreu Wines in Napa befire joining FUTO.

Since the inaurgural vintage FUTO has produced 26 wines, for which there have been a total of 53 individual reviews from Robert Parker, Antonio Galloni, James Suckling and Jeb Dunnuck: 40 of these have been awarded a score of 95-100 points. That's over 70% of all reviews!!!
