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 Pinot Noir is full of black cherry, vanilla and sweet spice aromas. Fresh and vibrant red fruit on the palate with vanilla, caramel and dark berry accents on the finish. It’s medium bodied with pleasant tannins and a long finish.
