Vintner's Tasting Experience
Experience a rare and unique opportunity to taste with our very own Founder/Winemaker, Ralph Hertelendy! Those of you that know Ralph from social media or major events know that he is a lot like his wines — unconventional, whimsical, and a force of nature.
“No one could accuse Ralph or his wines of lacking character.” — The Wine Independent, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW
"...that's the Hertelendy style. Ralph (and his wines) are big and bold, welling with intensity, and some tasters might find them a bit over the top. They're certainly not lacking in character, and in a place like Napa, which can sometimes seem increasingly corporate, that's always a good thing." — Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
“I like to make wines that people don’t expect. To do the opposite of what something should be.” — Ralph Hertelendy
