That's a great question. We travel the United States, exploring the best wine regions and the people that play a part in making them special. We focus on producing wines that represent these places, transporting you to a local "State of Mind". Our goal is to partner with vineyard sources and wine growers that respect the land, are mindful about the varietals they produce there, and focus on quality over quantity. Our traveling Director of Winemaking, Michael Kennedy, spends his time in the wineries and vineyards in each region, working to make sure the wine in the bottle is nothing short of excellence. See below for some of our featured regions. In 2018, we plan to explore more, opening opportunities to feature new regions and varietals.
Oregon - Willamette Valley
Oregon's Willamette Valley is home to arguably the best terroir for Pinot Noir in the United States. It's cool climate, jory and loam soils and high latitude come together to create world class wines. In Oregon, we produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, from one of the most lauded single vineyards, the LS Vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills.
Missouri - Defiance/Augusta
Did you know that the first American Viticultural Area was in... Missouri? Well, before prohibition, Missouri was home to world class wines and plenty of winemaking history. At our Missouri estate, we grow Vignoles and Norton, two grapes that have a bright future in our country.
California - Napa Valley
It would be hard to create an American winemaking project without including California's Napa Valley. Napa is iconic for its name, but also for the quality of wines coming from this valley. Our facility is located in the heart of Napa, where we produce from some excellent and storied single vineyard sites. Here, we focus on Cabernet Sauvignon.
