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.
