Together we are Owl & Vine, a small company that creates distinctive wine brands. Rather than own land, we work with farms usually owned or managed by close friends, relationships that are key to our success. We have as much hands-on involvement wherever possible, whether it be shoveling grapes into large open fermenters and sorting berries at harvest, pouring wine at a dinner or personally delivering wine.
