  • Gnarly Dudes is part of the Picture Series, one of four series. The others are the Garden Series, Flagship Series, and the Single Vineyard Series.

  • Two Hands was born in September 1999 when Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz decided to make their own wine after discussing it at a friend’s engagement party.
  • Two Hands’ first vintage was in 2000 with 17 tons of fruit. The Garden Series was launched in 2003.
  • Gnarly Dudes has its first vintage in 2003.
