You don’t have to be an art historian to appreciate a masterpiece and you certainly don’t need to be a sommelier to enjoy delicious wine.
Our wines are inspired by the creative drive and fearless spirit of artists like Claude Monet, Edourard Manet, and Auguste Renoir.
Claude Monet was a founder of the Impressionist movement in the late 19th century. Monet painted this colorful destination for pleasure-seeking Parisians in 1869. Like friends out for a day of fun, this Chardonnay is meant to be easily enjoyed.
Edouard Manet was a famously innovative painter. This ethereal, mesmerizing portrait of a fellow artist shows the deeply profound essence of its subject. Just as our Cabernet Sauvignon captures the character and mystery of the variety.
Auguste Renoir was a trend-setting Impressionist. This piece captures the sensual, vibrant revelry of working-class Parisians dressed for a fun Sunday in the park. We think our nuanced and textured Pinot Noir would have fit in rather nicely.
A Double Platinum Award for our 2013 Cabernet Manet! “Aromas of toasted marshmallow and black currant… Its beautiful structure is filled with blackberry, plum and a finish that’s oh so smooth.”
2016 Chardonnay Monet: “Melon and peach aromas are followed by lightly creamy fruit flavors that display a pleasing sense of balance…Well recommended.”
2013 Cabernet Manet: “Opulent, smooth, and medium-bodied wine [with] a deep core of black fruit, black licorice, and clove. It’s what you hope for in a Cab…Outstanding!”
2015 Pinot Renoir: “A friendly, flavorful burst of sweet berry fruit... a dash of sweet baking spice... a wine to drink up while it's young and carefree...Well recommended.”
Our 2017 Chardonnay Monet received a Gold award at the 2018 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition!

Two Drummers, One Bright Idea, and a Whole Lotta Wine.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
Dave and Matt met while working in the music technology industry. Marketing and selling music creation tools was a reasonably simple transition for two drummers in search of steady work. Then a funny thing happened on the way to the next trade show. Matt got fired. And with a sudden clean slate in life, he dove into wine. Not literally. But nearly.
Dave was forging his own unique professional path when Matt approached him with the idea of developing a product line combining classic wine styles with the emotional appeal of brilliant art. Dave thought it all sounded too easy (he’s since been proven wrong on several occasions, which Matt is quick to point out), but he agreed to throw his marketing acumen and notable passion into the mix. Thus began Drum Roll Wine.
The founders are still figuring things out, having fun in the process, and building on their mission to make it easier for consumers to choose great wine. Like great art, wine can seem intimidating or overwhelming, but it’s made to be enjoyed. So get ready for your next bottle, case, or barrel of Drum Roll Wine. And anticipate every glass!
