Our winemaker, Jason Dodge, says the secret to making great wine is sticking to the basics. Source the best grapes from the best vineyards and create wines that are a true expression of each particular grape varietal and the region it comes from. Keep it simple and the flavors will shine through.
However, keeping it simple takes a lot of experience. Jason has earned a number of scientific degrees, including in fermentation science, and he’s been making wine for nearly 20 years. Plus, he’s a tireless advocate of wine quality and has been the driving force behind many winemaking and technology advancements.
“I want to make wines with great intensity and concentration: ripe and fruit forward wines with chewy tannins and a lush mouthfeel.”
