Utilizing the Vineyards from around the world, (California, Australia, Washington State, Italy, Chile, Argentina) Chris takes the juices and skins, along with the fresh mountain spring water and creates these wines. Chris wants folks to have an enjoyable memory of the mountains along with the wines. A unique gift to give to the house sitter or pet sitter or that neighbor who may have picked up your mail and watched over your property while you were away enjoying the mountain views.
Or enjoy a taste of the mountains while dining on fine steaks, seafood, BBQ or Italian cuisine, “Bob says some of our Tuscan wines were made just for pizza.”
Our desert wines can be paired with a piece of cake or a slice of pie. “MMMM.” (Springs in the Air with peach cobbler).
Customers can purchase wine/beer/mead making supplies. We can instruct interested customers in home wine making.
Taking time and care is a patient job, and Chris strives for everyone to be happy about the wines they purchase from the shop. Everyone has a unique palate for wine, and sometimes, you stick with what you like, but if you are willing to try something different or want to look for a new flavor to add to your collection of wines, one can always be sampled. Chris offers a “Wine Flight” special where you get to go home with a complimentary glass. The glass is also designed by Chris and the glass may be different each time you visit. Prices will vary depending on the glass.
With almost 40 varieties, we are challenging ourselves to introduce “Limited Edition” Wines that will only be available periodically throughout the year, at only certain times. We will also be introducing at least 5 new wines a year, hoping to grow our current selections even larger.
We Vint Wines. Always wanting to make people feel happy and enjoy life, Chris’ career started as a pharmacy technician working her way from a level one technician to a Specialized Compounding Technician and receiving sterile compound training education. Chris realized that her skills and talents would come into play when making wines from the grape juices and skins from around the world. Her extensive training consisted of measuring, weighing and “thinking outside the box” for pets and people, sparked the “I can make that” even more possible. Using great tasting mountain bottled water, Chris’ wine take on a balance and finish that are truly remarkable.
This is a collective effort of a husband and wife team; and the wife likes to think outside that box and bring new and exciting flavors to the wines. The husband is the silent partner who supports his wife in every way possible with sometimes just assisting to help her with just washing the wine glasses, and other sterilization duties. “Bob & Chris”.
Interest in wines and the varieties, became more of a passion in the late 1980’s closer to 1998 when Chris realized the health benefits of wine. We are still learning to pair wines with new dishes.
