Our winery is in The Bittman Mercantile Co. building, which is rich in history, from the amethyst-colored prism glass in the upstairs leaded windows to the hand-laid limestone walls and foundations. Outfitted with a beautiful stamped-tin building façade and high stamped-tin ceilings from an earlier century, this building is steeped in hand-crafted beauty from a different era. All have stood watch on 100 plus years of history along Main Street in our riverside farming town. We follow history as a guide, not a rulebook.

We are a new kind of winery: different in a better way. We are hands-on when it comes to making our small-batch, artisanal wines in our authentic boutique farm winery.

Yet we are quite modern - taking advantage of every technical and scientific improvement that makes sense to incorporate into our winemaking process, yet also quite “Old School” adhering to the traditions of winemaking that have been successful for centuries.

Instead of owning a little Kansas vineyard, where we might grow a few acres of 3 or 4 kinds of grapes, we have the world of grapes to choose from. And, instead of making a thousand or more gallons of only those 3 or 4 wines, we hand-make much smaller barrels of many different wines. In parts of the world more steeped in “wine culture”, we would be called an Urban Winery, in spite of our beautiful, pastoral – even bucolic – setting.

In any year, we will make between 30 and 50 different wines in lots of between 20 and 100 cases only. While we know that each one is a gem in its own right, we also know that each one will be its own rarity. When each is sold out, we will move on to whatever strikes our fancy next. We are a world-wide wine adventure right here in your own back yard.

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
