Cartlidge & Browne

Cartlidge & Browne

For Tony Cartlidge and Glen Browne, as with many great entrepreneurs and iconoclasts of the 20th century, the legend began in 1980 in an undistinguished Napa Valley garage. Cartlidge—a dreamer with a love of wine and a fondness for taking the road less traveled—and Browne—a man of great business sense and a small amount to invest—set out to build a wine company from scratch. As far as they could tell, there was no need (or, more to the point, not enough money) to buy an estate. Only a desire to seek out the best vineyards, harvest the best grapes and make the best wine possible.
Cartlidge scoured the appellations of the North Coast in his 1960 Rambler, from Napa to Sonoma to Mendocino to Lake, to source grapes farmed with care and concern for the land. He brought the harvest back to a simple garage winery to handcraft wines they knew people would enjoy as much as they did. Cartlidge & Browne wines soon began to garner raves from critics and wine lovers alike.

Gouguenheim WInery

Gouguenheim WInery

Seventy kilometers from the city of Mendoza, in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, lays one of the best kept secrets in the Uco Valley, called GOUGUENHEIM WINERY. Several geographical and climate elements define the unique terroir. The vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of more than 3.600 feet (one of the highest estates in Mendoza). In a region that has a desert climate, they use melt water from the Andes Mountains carried by irrigation channels, through the alluvial soils. All these elements that are found in their estates, that allow the fruit ripening and concentration, come together, with the expertise and knowledge of their people to define their wines, and consistently produce top quality wines year after year. Gouguenheim wines develop great colors, aromas and flavours, with round tannins.
In 2002 Patricio Gouguenheim found a very old winery located in the Uco Valley, with a lot of small tanks ideal for the production of high quality wines, and that was the start of his venture in this wonderful, crazy business! He hung up his suit and tie, and started working in the great outdoors.

Tamarack Cellars

Tamarack Cellars

When you visit the winery, you won’t find them in a fancy chateau. Instead you’ll find yourself immersed in the everyday workings of a family-owned winery, racking, blending and bottling wine, in a renovated firehouse located in a World War II Army Air Base. Founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman, Tamarack’s first vintage consisted of 300 cases of Merlot. The goal was to make elegant, balanced, delicious wines and offer them at a fair price. Years later, and now up to 20,000 cases each year, the focus remains the same.
Tamarack Cellars hand-crafts consistently outstanding wines for a great price. It’s about a passion for excellence. They buy grapes from the most renowned vineyards in Washington State and create their wines barrel by barrel. Tamarack’s wines offer a delicious expression of Washington vineyards’ style and elegance in every bottle.
