Inspiration Vineyards & Winery
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 »

It is that time of the year again, when we writers wrack our brains to come up with the most important events of the year. In looking for my wine of the year, I have to weigh many factors. Not only does the wine have to be great, that of course is a given - and a very subjective one at that, but it also has to be important. For me, a wine is imp... Read More
I am a dyed in the wool fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlots, Sangiovese's and a few Chardonnays and Pinot Grigio's. I am trying to widen my spectrum to include Pinot Noir's. I live in the Pacific Northwest so the Pinot Noir's are readily available due to the large varieties from Oregon.Before I embark on purchasing some different brands I would l... Read More
I recently put together a tasting of orange style wines (for a future article). In my small of part of the wine universe, orange wine has a respected place. However, I found it odd, that it was so difficult to make my tasting successful. First, finding the attendees for the tasting took some doing. I was amazed by how many experienced Italian wi...

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
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...
