Notes from Coquina:
"Our love for creating beautiful wines comes second only to creating those wines together. We are a family business that thrives on creating beautiful wines together and sharing them with you.
Our initial partnership began in 2014 at Kosta Browne Winery in Sebastopol, California, where we helped craft award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In 2018, we moved across the hill to work as cellar master and enologist at Napa’s Realm Cellars. With the ambition to make something truly our own, we adventured north to the misty hills of the Willamette Valley in Oregon in 2021. This was the beginning of Coquina Wines.
Coquina is an expression of our passion for this craft paired with our values of hard work, pleasure, relationships, and balance of life. We make our wines to be spirited and classic in style. Meant to be enjoyed anywhere, by anyone. We believe in low intervention winemaking practices in the vineyard and cellar.
