Meet The Winemakers

  • Mark Porembski

    Mark Porembski first became interested in wine years ago while studying poetry and discovering that some restaurants in Boston’s North End were not perfectly strict about the legal drinking age. He moved to California in 2000 to pursue his interest in wine, eventually taking on the position as Winemaker at Anomaly Vineyards. Mark founded Zeitgeist Cellars, a wine label in collaboration with his wife, Jennifer Williams, in 2005. With experience that includes dozens of wineries in Napa and a stint in Hawkes Bay New Zealand, Mark brings conscientious selection and a commitment to simple and thoughtful creation to Unwritten Wines.

“Many wineries claim that their wines emulate the incredible Napa Valley Cabernets of the 1970’s; this wine actually achieves that style. The 2016 Unwritten Cabernet Sauvignon from St Helena is a study in elegance. On the nose there are scents of tobacco leaf, forest floor and acacia flower. The palate displays flavors of red currant, anise and a sophisticated note of iron/clay minerality. Perfectly integrated tannins seamlessly support the body of the wine throughout the palate. The 2016 is a graceful wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for future enjoyment. It is refreshing to see wines being made in this refined style again.” Willi Sherer, Master Sommelier
