Taste: Enchanting notes of dark chocolate, black currant, cigar box and Bing cherries will take over your senses. Mouth filling in texture, this wine has heft and weight while being well balanced in the finish.

 

At a young age, founder Carl Stanton was driven by challenges. Carl came from a career military family–mom and dad met in the base mess hall in between the Korean and Vietnam wars. Carl learned the value of work, integrity, and partnership. Over the next 30 years, he developed a career running and investing in small businesses. Serendipity struck in 1998 when Carl and his friends created the beginnings of Westwood and founded the Annadel Gap Vineyard. For the next dozen years, the team planted and replanted, slowly finding the voice of the vineyard, that sweet spot of varietals farming and winemaking.

The partners at Westwood have long been concerned with the pressures of commercial farming on the earth. Monocultures, commercial fertilizers, high-volume pressures fad taken their toll on too many beautiful farms. After studying the most celebrated properties in Burgundy and Bordeaux, and eager to make world-class wines that come from such properties, the partners quickly agreed that Organic (and Biodynamic) would be central hallmarks of their winemaking. The company vowed in 2015 that the large majority of Westwood wines would only come from sources that were Sustainable, Biodynamic, or Organically farmed. And in 2016, Westwood’s Annadel Gap Vineyard became fully Demeter certified Biodynamic and certified Organic.
