Anyone ever hear of Two Mile Winery?

Just saw SF Chronicle poll voted this small Berkeley winery as the best.
I have never heard of it. Does anyone know anything about them?
Is this some cult winery I have not read about?
Any reports would be great!

    I noticed them on the list for the East Bay Vintners Alliance event on April 4.

      I know Two Mile well. It is my opinion that these people do a lot of things right. I love the viognier and the long-lived Sangiovese. It is a sleeper winery. Get on their pre-release program because it is hard to find their wines.

        Thanks
        Their website is really vague.
        I assume they have a big name winemaker making the wine for them, although I could not find out who from their website.
        "Do lots of things right" - like what?

          If they had a big name, they'd probably drop it. Sounds like they're eight former amateurs.

          They're open 2-6pm Saturdays.

        I've been to the winery and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the wine (I was invited by a relative and honestly didn't expect much). The wine makers started as amateurs, and have only been selling commercially the last couple of years. They seem to really love making wine and enjoy talking to people who stop by. In particular, we really enjoyed the sangiovese and syrah.

          Does anyone know where they are moving to? I had heard that some of the partners were going to leave, but today, there was a moving truck taking barrels out and a for lease sign on the building. The website is still operating.
