Reviews and Ratings

If we could get our Gewürztraminer into stainless steel tanks without touching it, we would. Until then, we practice what we call, "hands-off winemaking" to preserve the delicate aromatics that make it special. We took twice the time to press our grapes this year so we'd be twice as gentle with the aromatics.

We smell orange blossom and we taste notes of passionfruit and honeysuckle.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
