About Us

Apriori is the fruit of a collaboration between Patrice Breton & Georges Sabongui, two very passionate, focused and driven vintners who have been friends since high school. Both Patrice & Georges enjoyed successful careers in the technology industry before dedicating their attention to the craft of wine. 

Legendary winemaker Philippe Melka joined the production team as a consultant in Fall 2015. Philippe is well known throughout the world, having worked for such esteemed estates as Château Pétrus, Château Haut-Brion, Bryant Family and Dominus Estate.
