Hand Crafted Wines

Dark Water was a vision shared amongst two friends while enjoying a glass of wine. With a desire to produce fatto a mano (handmade) wine, readily available for the wine community, Reggie and David began their journey. Reggie Pagaling, a native entrepreneur, began exploring the wine industry in the early 2000’s. Reggie’s deep roots in his culture led him on a path to meet David, the winemaker, who brought his extraordinary skills to the forefront. A descendent of an Italian wine making family, David’s love for wine has taken him to three continents. While in the Toronto area of Canada, David honed in his skill and achieved Level 2 Sommelier recognition, further enhancing his winemaking ability before bringing his talent to California.
