Welcome to Waxwing Wines

Our goal at Waxwing it to make the wines in a flight you want to keep
drinking after you have pushed everything else away; wines that show
depth and integrity with bright acidity, compelling aromas and delicious
flavors. To do this we source grapes from cool and windy vineyards up and
down the coast of California. We pick the grapes at modest brix levels,
ferment with little or no additions and age in broken-in barrels from a
variety of French coopers.

Please sign up for our
mailing list to hear about future tastings, sales
events, and other Waxwing news.
