Pinot Evil

Pinot Evil's artisan winemaking team shares a passion for Pinot in all forms. Julian Halasz has a distinctive advantage in making these Hungarian wines having been born and raised in Budapest, a descendent of a Hungarian winemaking family. He officially came to California to study enology after working at his uncle's and other smaller Hungarian wineries learning all about Hungary's microclimates and the old world winemaking practices still widely employed there. He interned at several Livermore, CA wineries as well to learn the best of New World techniques. Heis now one of the lead winemakers for Concannon, and he also partners with Mario to craft Pinot Evil. Now a veteran California winemaker, Mario Pulido, was first inspired to become a winemaker after an extended trip throughout Europe in the 1970s. Inspired by its old world wine and food culture, Mario loves to craft both Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir given their food-friendly natures. "I enjoy Pinot Grigio's versatility and the challenges that Pinot Noir present a winemaker, especially with finding the balance between the wine's texture and fruit components." Julian shares this sentiment about his two favorite Pinots. He feels fortunate that with Pinot Evil's Hungarian ties, he can return so closely to his roots, "Winemaking is in my blood. I have grown up around wine, and one day I just realized how much I loved the artistic aspects of it."
