Featured Post: Page Springs Cellars



Length of time you’ve been in business: 10 years

Why did you get into your industry? What is your goal/mission?
At Page Springs Cellars, our goal is to create delicious wines that express the unique character of our landscape. We trust that our wines and winemaking convey our philosophies concerning family, education and living life to its fullest.

We believe to make great wine we must take just as much responsibility for the lands we steward as the community we live in.

We feel strongly that growing grapes, making wine and raising a glass is a cultural ritual that fosters friendship, brings together families, and unites communities. Good wine is not strictly the esoteric fare of nobility: Wine is for the people.

We desire to share our passion and interest in wine with everyone from the first time sipper to the seasoned enthusiast. Providing academic and hands on experiences are a big part of this desire to help people expand and trust their own senses.

Land, grapes, wine, friends, family, education and fulfillment. wine is within everyone’s reach!!!

Your specialty – the reason people choose you:
While my first love was certainly Pinot Noir, I have developed a serious relationship with varietals from the Southern Rhône. Here at Page Springs Cellars, we primarily work with Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Additionally, we dabble with other red grapes such as Cabernet Pfeffer, Counoise, and Cinsault. Our white grape loves include Viognier, Rousanne and Marsanne. While you may occasionally see us blending with Cabernet Franc, Barbera or Sangiovese—the flavorful grapes of the Rhône will always be our focus.

I like to keep an open mind about winemaking. While a good deal of what we do could be considered traditional (selective picking and sorting, small open-top fermentations, hand punch downs), there are times when the judicious use of technology can markedly improve a wine. We generally do not fine or filter, but there are occasions when a rough filtration brightens fruit or removes rough, gritty characters. In short, we always make the best wine we can. We have a wine-centered philosophy. The market is not driving our winemaking, quality is.
