Honoring the Grapes

p
Single Origin Wines

Founder and winemaker Scott Lindstrom-Dake honors each grower by crafting single vineyard, single varietal expressions of each individual vineyard the grapes come from.

 

Think of each varietal as a ‘snapshot’ from each vineyard and vintage, telling a story about that special place and time.
