RE:FIND Distillery is crafting artisan spirits from grape/grain to glass in the heart of Paso Robles wine country. Proprietors and Distillers, Alex & Monica Villicana, believe in the authenticity of the ingredients distilled, and transparency in the distilling process. In doing so, what was once a conversation on the amount of times a spirit is distilled and filtered is now a discussion on the quality of the ingredients and fermentation and what each brings to the final product. RE:FIND Distillery stands tall among craft distillers committed to crafting their spirits from fermentation to bottle.
RE:FIND Distillery was derived from the Villicana's desire to be more sustainable in their winery (Villicana Winery) practices by utilizing premium resources that are unfortunately unused or discarded. RE:FIND Distillery was founded on the concept of using the prized saignée (free-run juice) that boutique wineries begrudgingly discard and fermenting and distilling it. This practice allows RE:FIND to reclaim approximately 60-acres of premium Paso Robles wine grapes each year through their distillery. That's a lot of water, fuel, and manpower being repurposed into a premium spirit.
RE:FIND Distillery firmly believes in honesty, authenticity, and transparency in their distilling practices. RE:FIND is dedicated to California family farmers, artisan brewers, and boutique vintners by obtaining and highlighting their labors of love and crafting them into well-balanced, full flavored spirits with lots of layering and a distinct finish. Starting with high quality, unprocessed, seasonally sourced natural ingredients, and paying close attention to their stills, the distillers of RE:FIND are able to bottle their spirits unfiltered. After all, if the spirits are derived from high quality materials, go through a clean fermentation, and use only the ethyl alcohol, they shouldn't have to be filtered!
