Founded in 2002, Inspiration Vineyards and Winery produces approximately 1000 cases annually, spread among seven different wines. In 2002, while waiting for our permits, we contracted with another winery facility where we could produce our first commercial wines. In June of 2003, we announced our first release, and by fall our official winery operation began on-site, with the production of approximately 500 cases. Besides continuing our efforts in producing a quality product, our new focus has been to broaden our distribution through expansion of our commercial accounts. Our mission is to produce high quality, food friendly wines at an affordable price for the consumer; using the finest quality grapes grown in an appropriate terroir, from appellations that are known and respected. Our philosophy is simple; great wines can only be made with excellent grapes. As a winegrower, it is our job to pick our fruit at the peak of ripeness and handle it carefully during the winemaking process. The resulting efforts are wines that show off the region and vineyard where they’re grown. Our wines are also meant to be enjoyed right away, with the potential of improving with a few additional years of aging. Tasting Room Appointments must be made in advance to visit our winery. Please allow ample time when planning a visit. Read less

Tasting Notes:

From our “Front Yard” I can always pick this wine out blind because of its distinctive nose of bay and cloves. The 2006 vintage is no exception; medium bodied, layered with concentrated flavors of cranberry and black cherry along with spice notes of cardamom, clove, bay and white pepper.

The grapes for this wine come from our very own hand tended, 100 year old head pruned and dry farmed vineyard in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley; producing a distinctive wine rich with fruit flavors.

48 cases produced.

Notes: Open-top fermented. Aged for 9 months in a combination of two year old French and American oak.
