We've had one way of making wine since that first vintage, 1997: keep it small, keep it simple and keep it focused. In our first vintage we produced about 150 cases total; and we leveled out at 3500 cases a few years ago. We've limited ourselves to a quantity we can watch over, in the vineyard and the cellar. By working with selected, dedicated grape growers and employing methods that we believe craft superior wine, we hope to create wines of individual character, a blend of richness, balance and pleasure. Our winemaking focuses on the purity of the individual varieties and the vineyards they come from. We do those things that a small winery has the luxury of doing: we know every barrel.

  • Betz Clos de Betz Columbia Valley 2011


    67% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit VerdotBlack fruit, herbs, mint, and spice all add nuance to the black plummy fruit of the nose that picks up hints of graphite with air. Deep and intense on the nose. Round, opulent and intense in the mouth, his shows of bright and juicy acids and soft tannins before turning voluptuously soft and sup... Read More

  • Betz la Cote Rousse Syrah Red Mountain 2011


    Inky on the nose and rich with aromas of dried herbs, roasted coffee, and almost gamy meat topped with spicy black pepper notes. Another big wine thats underpinned with good acids and fine ripe, polished tannins that lend this a voluptuous texture.

    54% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 12% Counoise, 12% Mourvedre, 7% SyrahVery pretty on the nose with a hint of road tar, some spicy herbs, wild strawberry fruit and then a huge garrigue, black fruit, leather and peppery scent emerges as the wine warms in the glass.

  • Betz Family Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Père de Famille 2007


    Concentrated and effusively complex, this wine boasts cassis, blueberry, pencil lead and garrigue that linger on the palate. A satisfyingly rigid structure is supported by a pleasant, balanced generosity of fruit. This Bordeaux blend is always good for long-term cellaring. Read More

It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley  which is in ... Read More

  • Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended. This changes - and some would say completes - its distinctive profile. To showcase this iconic black grape, I wanted to pluck out varietal Cabernets. However, I most wanted to spotlight wines from Washington and some of my favorites there are Cabernet-dominated blends. So, I’ve chosen some of both.While no lo... Read More

Cayuse, Quilceda Creek, Leonetti all occupy the top 3 spots, followed by a few mid tier standards like Betz, Reynvaan, Maison Bleue, Grammercy. Well, I should say I'm just starting to get to know these names and also starting to buy ...
