No. While we may plant grapes in the future, we believe in focusing on the area we are strong in and, for us, that is winemaking and wine education. (We actually kinda suck at growing stuff.) Co-owner and winemaker Willem Johnson operates as a negociant winemaker by purchasing grapes from other vineyards and processing them to sell them under our label. This practice first began in the French region of Burgundy. This allows a winemaker to choose the very best fruit and enter the market with less investment. A well-known American negociant, Dave Phinney, founder/winemaker of Orin Swift (known for Prisoner, Mannequin, Mercury Head, etc.), shares our philosophy: “find the best fruit from the best vineyards and don’t screw it up”.
