A NATURAL STEP
As owners of a marketing design firm for the last 15 years, with many clients in the Napa Valley wine industry, we sought to leverage our love of wine with our insatiable need to create.
Over the years, we have developed relationships with many exceptional people--not only in marketing departments as you would expect, but with winemakers, vineyard managers, hospitality directors and owners. These are the people who nurtured our passion for wine, inspiring us with their dedication to their craft.
After careful consideration, we felt it was time to combine our passion for great wine, respect for the art of winemaking and our creative backgrounds, to create our own world-class wines.
It is our belief that you must begin with the best fruit to create wines of exceptional quality. With our unique resources we have access to premium blocks in the finest vineyards, from which, all our fruit is meticulously hand selected. It is the discerning manner in which our grapes are chosen, that makes each of our vintages very limited in quantity, and affords us the opportunity to create truly special wines.
