Winemaking

Quality Without Compromise

Winemaker, Ross Reedy, went on a mission to craft premium wines that supported his interest in healthier living and an active lifestyle. This quest took over two years of research in new winemaking innovation followed by extensive tasting evaluation. The results are original wines that deliver on delicious flavor and reduced calories.

MEET ROSS

Ross became fascinated with the craft of winemaking as a teenager, while making wine at home with his father in San Jose, California. By the time he was 18, he had made up his mind to pursue his passion full time. Reed studied Wine and Viticulture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, while simultaneously gaining real-world experience at a boutique winery in Paso Robles. After graduation, he traveled the world chasing the perfect grape harvest. Stints in cellars, vineyards, and winemaking labs across Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, and Napa Valley eventually led him home to Northern California. When he's not immersed in the creative exploration and technical challenges of making wine, Reedy can be found spending time with his family and dog, playing guitar, getting outdoors and seizing any opportunity for fishing.

THE GRAPES

Cense Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in Marlborough, New Zealand, one of the most highly acclaimed wine regions in the world. The area benefits from long, sunny days balanced with brisk sea breezes to create a slow growing season allowing fruit to reach full maturity and ripeness.

Cense Rosé grapes are grown in California, primarily from the North and Central coast regions. These coastal areas are renowned for their long growing seasons characterized by warm sunny days followed by cool foggy evenings and mornings. This climate provides grapes with a delightful balance of fruit and acidity.
