Making wine is not only about winemakers - it's about vision, creativity and team effort. After talking and visiting with many vineyards up and down the west coast for over a year and a half, tasting their wines and meeting the people behind the bottles, the choice for Wines That Rock was an easy one. The Mendocino Wine Company brought so many strengths to the table including great tasting, award-winning wines, respect for the planet through true environmental leadership and a support team that fully understood the direction we wanted to take Wines That Rock. MWCo. leads the industry in environmental leadership, and has lead by example with sustainable farming practices, earth friendly packaging, carbon neutrality and 100% green energy, so much so that they recently were awarded the 2009 Governors Economic and Environmental Leadership Award.
But it was more than their business acumen and the fact that they were green to the core. MWCo. shared our passion for this project in their willingness to step outside the box (and bottle) to create wines blended specifically for the music of The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and the Woodstock Festival. And as we move forward, the team is ready for the next challenge to identify the essence of the musical expression of our artists…listen, capture and bottle it.
From the grape to the label, Wines That Rock is a labor of love. We know you will enjoy the Wines That Rock experience as much as we enjoyed crafting it.
