We believe that wine always tells the truth. The truth of the terroir and the weather the vines experienced throughout the year. The truth of the deep stewardship and great skill of the vineyard managers and workers who patiently and wisely nurture the grapes to full ripe maturity. The truth of the obsessive craftsmanship of the winemaker, who meticulously frets over each vintage.

We also believe that wine is a pleasure, to be experienced not as a test of the wine drinker's skill or grasp of arcane details, but as a joy in the gathering of friends, family, community. Wine delights us most in the sharing of it. Here are some wines we are pleased to share with you: 

2017 The Stand Up

Think of great Stand Up comedians—George Burns, Don Rickles, Lenny Bruce, Joan Rivers, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Robin Williams...the list is long.  What  do great Stand Ups have in common?  No frills, straightforward, classic.  They speak truth, but always with an edge.  A tradition we seek to honor with our Stand Up Chardonnay.

2019 Frolic

Light-hearted, but purposeful. A little Frolic is good for the soul. Our best family gathering memories are of those unplanned, but wonderfully silly, joyful moments. Our Frolic is a lovely summer sip as well as a meaningful balance to winter's holiday meals. Choose your own purpose.

2019 Quip

A “quip” is one of the three principle forms of “wit,” which is considered the intelligent form of humor.  Specifically, a quip is a smart, sarcastic turn of phrase or jest.  Always smart and always a little sassy. Describes this rosé perfectly.  Come on, get your sass on!

2016 Satire

Satire is the essence of truth through humor. True satire must be witty, while simultaneously offering a critique of social issues. Sometimes we're more willing to think when we start out laughing first. We bet you can think of modern jesters who encourage you to think. Our 2014 Satire is a thought-provoking Yakima Valley red blend - 44% Merlot/30% Cabernet Franc/15% Cabernet Sauvignon/7% Malbec/4% Petit Verdot.

2016 Wisdom

In our family, we prefer our wit heavily salted with wisdom - or is it the other way around? Great humorists offer us wisdom. Kings relied on jesters to deliver them truth and wisdom while making them laugh. Our 2016 Wisdom is a Yakima Valley red blend - 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot. We're feeling wiser already.

2017 Retort

We love words and language. As TruthTellers to kings, jesters relied on clever witty words and phrases to speak their truths. Here's our latest favorite: A "retort" is a quick and wittily incisive answer to a remark. So, when folks remark "Petit Verdot is really just a blending wine," we say "this is our Retort!" 

Aged in neutral French Oak for 20 months.

Sourced from:

  • - Stone Tree Vineyard 
  • - Ranch and the End of the Road

2016 The Cynic

You might think “cynic” sounds negative and distrustful, but the original Greek philosophy calls for a rejection of false values and a life lived in harmony with nature. A love of humanity was believed to call for truth and some degree of impudence, rejecting social norms. Sounds like someone we know!

2017 The Madman

By pretending to be a bit, well, mad, a jester could tell truth to power with even greater impunity. Perhaps we all need to go a little mad sometimes. The 2015 Madman is a Columbia Valley red blend - 60% Syrah/20% Cabernet Franc/20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

2016 The Confidante

Jesters were often the ones who heard the most secret truths of the king.  Friends and advisors are one thing.  But the word “confidante” inspires a sense of powerfulness, cloaked in darkness, and a mysterious air.  Step into the inner circle and say hello to The Confidante.
