We are the sole owners and employees of Rulo Winery. Kurt is the solo winemaker; Vicki is the worker bee. We share all other winery tasks equally from vineyard checks to tank washing to tasting room responsibilities to distribution to paperwork to cleaning toilets. We are control freaks. The entire day in and day out operation of our winery is dependant on the two of us and we can guarantee you we are not a hobby winery. This is a labor of love and more than a full time gig. That being said, we are extremely fortunate and eternally grateful for our wonderful family and friends who continue to donate many hours to assist us during crush, bottling, and event weekends.

On the financial side, we have no investors or partners. We built our winery using our savings account and incurring a large mortgage. We sleep at night knowing that if we fail we take no one down that path with us. On the distribution front, we have elected for no third party distribution involvement. It is important to us that we know our retailers and that they know us. We load up our Chevy pick-up with cases of wine and deliver to restaurants and shops personally. We do utilize FedEx and UPS for direct to consumer shipments.

We would like to thank all of you who support our winery by visiting and/or purchasing Rulo Wines. Your continued interest brings us great joy and reaffirms that we are producing quality wines for your drinking pleasure.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
