Often times people think that because we are a local winery making our own wines, that we must grow our own grapes. Well, we are really, really good at making AND drinking wine, but we’ll leave the growing to the experts.
That’s why we get our grapes from some of the best vineyards in California and Washington State. And the grapes for our Malbec come straight from Sonoma Coast, California.
Did you know that 84% of all American Malbec is planted in California? However, despite the fact that 84% of the Malbec plantings are in California, only 0.5% of all red grape plantings in California are Malbec. So, I guess you can say that the grapes for our Malbec are a hidden little gem, much like our tasting room - a hidden little gem in downtown Powell.
Stop by this week and have a taste, glass or bottle. Just say, "I really need an Attitude Adjustment" and we'll hook you up.
