Katie's winemaking dream is that wines should be varietally true, tasting of their grape origins with a distinct use of oak for texture and complexity. The stunning fruit flavors of her white wines are balanced by brittle acidity, while the reds have concentrated fruit flavors backed with refined tannins. Stylistically, these are food-friendly wines that are inspired by her love for cooking.
