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, Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, and Edourard Manet.
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.
Auguste Renoir, a trend-setting Impressionist, captures here the sensual, vibrant, and leisurely revelry of working-class Parisians dressed for a Sunday in the park. We think our nuanced and textured Pinot Noir would have fit in rather nicely.
Georges Seurat, known for an approach simultaneously daring and meticulous, painted this captivating depiction of urbanites gathered in an idyllic setting. The defining contrasts of light and dark fit well with the complexity of our Syrah.
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.

2013 Cabernet Manet: “Opulent, smooth, and medium-bodied [with] a deep core of black fruit, black licorice, and clove. It’s what you hope for in a Cab…Outstanding!”
Anticipate Every Glass
Because wine is always something to look forward to.
Wine was a discovery, not an invention. It’s as if it was always meant to be. And we have thousands of years of wine traditions to celebrate in our world. Spreading from Eurasia to every inhabited continent on the planet, wine is a central part of human history and humanity itself. It’s also always developing, making wine somehow both ancient and new.
Wine took on a special meaning for Matt when he was laid off from a longterm job. With a sudden clean slate in life, he dove into wine (not literally, but nearly) and soon realized there would always be something new to enjoy, appreciate, and learn.
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!
