Having enjoyed global careers in banking and tech, Grant Westcott and Carolyn Hurst knew they weren’t the “retiring” kind.
Initially thinking they would grow grapes and sell them to other wineries, they planted twenty-eight acres of grapes and were on their way!
As time went on, however, they realized that they wanted to produce their own wine under their own Westcott Vineyards label. Winemaker Arthur Harder joined them to take their precious grapes and create their first vintage in 2012.
Their estate chardonnay is full of baked apple, spice and an subtle pineapple notes, with a mouthfeel that is simultaneously dry and sturdy yet creamy and rather curvy. Delicious stuff.
