We specialize in European vinifera and hybrid grapes, several of which are rich in anti-oxidants. Veteran winemakers John Fletcher and Vera Klokocka combine their craft with a love for the vines, a desire to let the grapes speak for themselves, and a passion for expressing over a dozen styles of wines for you to enjoy. Their experience in cold-climate varietals is reflected in numerous award-winning vintages. Our wines have been recognized for their quality, freshness and complex allure with a continuing series of awards since the first vintage in 1999.
