The winery produces around 14000 cases a year annually, spread over around 3 dozen different types. It is a continuous process of trying new things, from blends, yeast types, oak barreling or not and filtering or not. They use oak barrels from France, Slovenia, Hungary and America. Their motto: ‘We seek deliciousness and do everything by hand in small batches with lots of love and attention in order to fulfil our commitment to quality wine in the bottle’. Some of the key people are Larry Perrine, CEO/partner and Christopher Tracy, winemaker/partner. Walter Channing has, other than his business side, a widely creative, sculptural, part in his life, exhibiting at times his work.
