Our winemaking philosophy is to highlight the style,
quality and expression of our vineyard.
Ali Mayfield, Winemaker
People at the winery usually give me a double-take when I tell them I’m from Indiana and was a UPS delivery driver, but it’s true. I had been making wine as a hobby and when I would gift bottles to friends and family, they really enjoyed it. I soon realized making wine was what I really wanted to do. I took the leap, packed up my family, and moved to Washington State where I attended the viticulture program at Walla Walla Community College and honed my craft at some of my favorite wineries. This really was the right career for me, and I pursued it (still do!) with real passion but continued to strive to make wine in my own style and according to my own philosophy.
In 2013 I was finally able to produce a few barrels of this wine thanks to a tight network of friends and colleagues. I haed no real plan for it, just the seeds of an idea that would help me take my style of winemaking to the next level. And now, here we are!
