In 1998 we planted a test block vineyard just 20 minutes north of Lake Chelan at the bottom of the Methow Valley. It has Pinot noir and Cabernet Sauvignon and everything in between. That was step one. In 2001 we loaded up our car, put our house up for sale, and headed to the Willamette to make Pinot noir. Dean landed a job working for Bud Beck at Advanced Vineyards and then moved on to make wine under Isabelle Dutarte at Deponte and Tony Soter and James Cahill at Soter Vineyards. Heather took the retail side and spent time selling wines from relatively hard to find producers. – Description from milana

  • Nefarious Cellars Estate Syrah 2008

    Snoothrank:

    OK so our system refuses Lake Chelan. It should NOT. This wine is an excellent European expression of Syrah that shows well in comparison with CdR (Villages). The difference is: look to the north of the Rhone region and accept a bit of longevity in trade for accessible taste. This wine could easily masquerade as a Cote Rotie of modest proven... Read More

  • I get so caught up in work that I often neglect to check in here. I'm apologizing about that!  I'm back afer a few weeks in New Zealand, which sucks up all my time not only during the trip but for the weeks prior and, as it looks, most of the week after my return. Before you ask, new Zealand was great. A young wine industry but one that has made... Read More
