This slow pace continues in our cellar where we take the time to craft wines that are complex, rewarding and hand made. Gentle pressing, cool fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and long barrel aging in small barriques allow us to elevate our wines so that they are rich, creamy and downright delicious.

  • Cupcake Riesling 2009


    Was very acidic and lemony at first, which put me off to it. It sat in the fridge as a cooking wine until I felt I needed a white to accompany a meal and it was the only white left. Seemed sweeter and was more pleasant the second time around, maybe hints of honey? I can't be sure it was the wine opening up that changed the flavor (it may have... Read More

  • Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008


    Smooth wine that is rather simple. Seems as though the vines are not particularly stressed as the flavor is not particular intense. Good table wine, but would not recommend serving at a dinner with fine dining food. Read More
