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 Read more »

  • Rioja Inspiratión Valdemar Doca Auf Anfrage 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Deep and rich bing cherry on the nose tinted with some great oak notes. Smoky tar leads to a light and playful, yet heavy mouthfeel (oxymoron but it shows complexity!) A touch of spiciness makes gives it power and finesse Read More

  • Well, there are wines you dream about, and then there are wines you can only dream about. Rarity plays an important role in the pricing of the most expensive wines. They are usually great, but what truly distinguishes these bottles is the fact that there are more people chasing them than there are bottles. It's simple supply and demand.So, what'... Read More

  • Hey all. I'm a wine reviewer, and I just launched an article on some pretty great Rhone blends from Calcareous Vineyards, out of Paso Robles. Plus, I'm going to be attending a Rhone Rangers tasting in a couple of days, so I've got the region on my mind. What are some of your favorite Rhone grapes, regions (New or Old World), and producers? This ... Read More

  • Westbound Inspiration 2007

    Snoothrank:

    From a preservation machine. Intense nose of dark fruit (cassis, dark cherry), minty herbs, with hints of chocolate sauce and wood. Firm acid on the attack, esp around the rim of the tongue, that balances the deep ripe neither sweet nor sour dark fruit, warm spices (pepper, perhaps a bit of cardamom or ginger) earthy dried fruit, and hints of...

  • So, what’s it gonna be this year? Please, not another tie for Dad! I know that’s just an old clichéd line, but, well, you know how hard it can be getting something that makes Father’s Day special and doesn’t just get thrown in a drawer. Nothing is better than just setting aside some time to share with your father for his special day. After all, ... Read More

  • Hi Everyone,New here so be gentle. Ever since I've heard about "Mega-purple" I've tried to do as much research on the topic as possible. Most people on the retail side either don't know about it or claim ignorance. Once I picked up on what I perceived to be M/P I've had a hard time getting passed it. Michael and David's 7 Deadly Zins seems to be... Read More

  • It was at Vinify Wine Service in Santa Rosa Calif which is a custom crush facility where many small Sonoma County Boutique wineries make their wares. 19 wine makers pouring 72 different bottlings. Made it about 2/3 through the presentation before I started getting palate fatigue and everything started tasting alike. Lots of good Pinots, a couple... Read More
