A brief history

Cobden Wini is the culmination of an effort involving family, friends, long days, longer nights, lots of college debt, and plenty of fun along the way. The brand name is a tribute to my parents, Christopher Cobden Davis and Mary Winifred Davis, without whom none of this would exist (including myself). Their support and encouragement enabled me to leave Maryland and head west to take a chance on a dream. Cobden Wini is the ultimate realization of that dream. So grab a glass, break out the corkscrew, and enjoy!

Meet The Winemakers

  • Mark Davis

    Mark Davis grew up in Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. (not exactly wine country). After graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in chemical engineering, his love of fermentation science (and boredom at his government job) brought him to California to see what winemaking was really like, outside of a small home-based hobby he had dabbled with.

    Mark quickly fell in love with the whole winemaking process: from tasting grapes to check for ripeness, to pumping over tanks, to shoveling out grape skins, and generally getting your hands dirty making great wine. After his first vintage, Mark applied to the world-renowned UC Davis viticulture and enology program. He was accepted and spent two years learning as much as possible about everything having to do with growing grapes and making wine. Mark graduated with high honors in 2010 and also received the honorary department citation for outstanding achievement in viticulture and enology.

    After several vintages across northern California as well as in Australia and South Africa, Mark eventually was given the opportunity to start his own label and in 2012 Cobden Wini Wines was born. As well as handling every aspect for the Cobden Wini label, Mark is also the winemaker at O’Brien Estate Winery in Napa. Mark continues to learn every day and strives to make the best wines possible while still making sure to have fun every step along the way.

Cobden Wini’s award-winning blend of Marsanne (74%) and Roussanne (26%); Two white grape varieties somewhat uncommon in California but commonplace in the Rhone Valley of France. The 2016 blend is from the Dalton Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. The wine is loaded with notes of wild flowers, honey, pear, with hints of citrus oil. The mouthfeel is rich and luscious, with a lingering finish of quince and honeysuckle. This wine will pair great with any fish, pork, or poultry dish. So grab a bottle and broaden your wine horizons.
