Our Philosophy

Quite simply, great wines are grown in the vineyard.

Our sustainable farming practices, attention to detail and extremely low yields produce grapes of infinite quality. Call us mavericks, rebels or even crazy, but we like to walk the edge and push ourselves everyday. If we don’t make mistakes along the way, we aren’t pushing our boundaries hard enough. The rewards always outweigh the risks.

We make wines we like to drink.

That’s why we are growing grapes and making wine in Washington State. Old world structure, funk and earthiness meet the always bright new world fruit. Our wines are a true expression of Washington State terroir and a celebration of the people that help us grow and craft this art. Similar to our philosophies and sustainable practices in the vineyards, we apply the lessons of good science, a fair bit of experimentation and a blend of old world techniques to get the extreme quality and concentration of flavors we seek in our finished wines. This starts in the vineyard and ends with the finished product in the bottle. As part of our commitment to delivering exceptional vino to our fans, we became the first Washington winery to use screw cap closures on all of our wines, thus ensuring every time you “crack that cap” it’s sure to be a good experience.
