- Philippe Langner was always fascinated with plants and how to grow them. His love of agriculture led him to U.C. Davis where he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Agronomy and a double Masters in Agronomy and Agricultural Economics.
After graduation Philippe returned to his family in Paris. His sister convinced him to try working at Chateau Clarke, a Rothschild property in Bordeaux, belonging to his brother in law. He started at the bottom of the ladder and moved up progressively while participating in aspects of viticulture and winemaking. It also allowed him the unique opportunity to enter the closed world the great Bordeaux Chateaux' and develop benchmarks of excellence working with two of Bordeaux's most respected winemakers: Jacques Boissenot and Michel Rolland.

Philippe Langner makes simply remarkable wines that exhibit balance and complexity in the most modest manner. Like a classic French wine Anatomy No1. is medium bodied and has cedar, graphite, and pencil led notes but wrapped inside there is California ripe fruit qualities of blackberry, plum, fennel and baking spices from oak aging that emerge through over time. This is a go to wine for a dinner party and will easily par with many different disches.
