Founded in 2001, Punchdown Cellars is a Santa Rosa-based custom crush facility providing winemaking services and logistics to boutique wineries and independent vintners. The facility was based on a collective of winemakers sharing space and having the freedom to hand craft their wines. The concept was a much welcomed breakaway from the status quo in the world of custom crush.
