Help Build A Tiny Private Tasting Haven

We made it through 2020 - specifically the pandemic, the economic hardship, unemployment, loss of childcare and wildfires.  

We dialed back our production and flipped our business model from 80% distribution sales to 80% direct sales (namely online).

I hired my first direct sales team member and she is taking the lead in managing our direct sales, revamping our wine club experiences, building a new monthly wine subscription, and doing all of this with much needed technology to support or direct sales growth potential!

We’re fighting to keep this ship afloat, to stay in business.

When we feel it’s safe for us, we want to welcome guests back for private tasting appointments at our home.  But the pandemic taught us a lot - and we need a dedicated space on our property to host friends.

We found an amazing solution to build on to our garage space.  This will be a game changer!  We can have a proper pick up location for locals who order our wines online.  We qualify for permits to build out!  This is very exciting!

But because our production costs are so massive, our capital is tied up in paying for operations.  We need a boost to help us pay for the additional space and design.

It takes a village!

We had such a gracious and generous outpouring of support when the pandemic hit - we would not be in business today without that incredible support!

We are calling on that energy again to manifest hope once more - to defy the “fight or flight” impulse and to rise!  With help, we can create this space and host our friends properly!

We will design a range of packages to thank all who participate in our appeal to HELP BUILD OUR TINY PRIVATE TASTING HAVEN!

Stay tuned for those amazing packages!

Thank you for showing up, for caring and for helping to ensure my Oregon Cabernet Franc dream stays alive!

Imagine our beautiful logo smacked on these incredible quality products!
