So, you've met the owl . . . with the attitude. He's our Wine Snob* ambassador.
He does a pretty good job, don't you think? That feather-do, that bowtie.
Especially that eye-roll.

What the owl is trying to say is, you don't have to be a wine snob to enjoy wine. You don't need to use words like "velvety tannins" and "hint of lychee on the nose" to describe a wine. And there's no wrong answer to the question,"What do you think about this wine?" The only thing that matters is whether you like it.

That's why we're Wine Snob* with an asterisk: Your taste buds. Your rules.
So, don't let the wine snobs get you down!

(If you are a wine snob, that's okay, too. It is pretty fun to say "velvety tannins." Embrace that inner wine snob, but try not to impose it on everyone around you - when you say you think Tempranillo tastes faintly like leather saddle, don't expect anyone else to know what you're talking about. After all, they didn't go saddle-licking with you last weekend. And, if you get a strange look, just know that you're the odd one.)


When we buy a bottle of wine to drink, our priorities are taste, quality, and cost. We want a bottle of wine that's yummy, interesting, unadulterated, and reasonably priced. And, that's what we want to offer to you.

So, we work to produce wines that we would look forward to sipping around a camp fire or enjoying with our favorite meals, and - most importantly - that we think taste above their price point. We put quality first and work with growers who use sustainable and organic farming practices. We just want the grapes and the barrels to do their thing.

Of course, in addition to having yummy, high-quality wine, it's nice to have a pretty label. So, thank you, feathered friend, for gracing us all with your presence.


Our wines are available for purchase in our tasting room in Glen Ellen, California.
