Our Family of Wines
LET Our Family BRING YOURS Together
Our four families of wine are made in the style of those originating in the most renowned wine regions of Italy, Bordeaux, Rhone, and the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by their greatness, we strive to make wines of rare quality that convey a similar expression of heritage while evoking the unique site where the vines are rooted.
THE ITALIAN FAMILY
Among world wine regions, the Italian peninsula is peerless. Its culture and history are married to the identity of wine. The cultivation of thousands of indigenous grapes over stunning landscapes gives fame to food-perfect pairings. From these unique and fertile surroundings, we draw inspiration to nurture, ferment, and create in its noble likeness.
THE BORDEAUX FAMILY
Bordeaux, in short, is the uncontested model for “red wine”. The mere mention of wine immediately conjures her marquee varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. These grapes are extensively grown and produced the world over. Not surprisingly, our passionate efforts are amply focused on these legacy varieties on their own, or skillfully blended. With the help of Washington winegrowers, we seek to carry on this time-honored tradition.
THE RHONE FAMILY
Located in south-central France, the Rhone Valley has earned the reputation for making a multiplicity of wines. Notably, the Northern Rhone region is celebrated for its style of opulent Syrah wines, while producers from Southern Rhone make well-rounded Grenache or Syrah-based blends. The cold winters, hot windy summers, and alluvial soils in Washington's Horse Heaven Hills AVA resemble aspects of both the Northern and Southern Rhone Valley, making this a perfect landscape for the cultivation of the heritage varieties in our Rhone Family wines and blends.
The Pacific Northwest Family
Wines made in the Pacific Northwest are marked with the signature of this region and have made a lasting impression on wine lovers and critics alike. Over time, unique cultural influences and uncommon terroir have inspired a transition from emulation into an independent seat at the table of globally recognized wines. Our PACIFIC NORTHWEST Family wines are made with the highest quality grapes being grown on the bluffs of the majestic Columbia Valley and across the lush hillsides of the fertile Willamette, exhibiting a distinctly regional style.
