Our Wine Philosophy
We craft our wines through rigorous research and testing to produce wines that we feel represent our terrior and flavors that we love. All grapes are harvested by hand, hand sorted twice and then fermented in specially designed tanks or barrels to achieve our flavor profiles. We taste each barrel every month and treat all wines as a blend; our goal is to make each wine the best it can be. We only produce wines that meet our standards, as we are not held hostage by distributors or big stores. We bottle only when the wine is ready, not based on a calendar.
We approach each wine as a blend, aspiring to bring out the best characteristics of each wine. We have signature blends such as Cinque Gemma, Zafira Zinfandel and Cabochon, but we also treat our Pinot Noir as a complex blend, using 4 clones. For example, we made 23 blends to finish our Chardonnay and 38 to make Cinque Gemma. If you are visiting the winery, you may see us blending; one day we used 218 glasses!
We are a small winery with wines available only at the winery or in our favorite restaurants. We encourage you to call us and we can assist you with your wine selections. We hope you enjoy the wines as much as we loved making them!
Cheers! Lisa Mulcahy, Tami Collins, Chris Mulcahy
