We recently included Ransom Wines Brooks Vineyard Riesling in our curated collection of outstanding Oregon whites, and love the philosophy behind Ransom winemaker Tad Seestedt’s style as much as we love his wine! So, we’d like to share it with you:
“The intent of Ransom Wine Company is to create artisan crafted wines that exemplify true varietal character and express the individuality of the growers, vineyard sites, and vintages. Our belief is that wine is best made by hand with minimal intervention. Winemaking decisions are mainly based on taste, instinct, the will of the grapes, and a bit of common sense. We believe that wine is an integral part of everyday meals, complimenting the food and adding to the sense of delight and fulfillment found in gathering to eat and drink. It is the function of wine to enhance fellowship, discussion, and the exchange of ideas. So visit the market, invite over friends and family, and raise a toast to health and happiness through good meals, conversation and socializing! SALUD!”
