Mixed Case of Cayuse

“While the ship has long since sailed with regards to getting on the mailing list, these are singular wines well worth the effort to track down.”

—Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

Perhaps you’ve heard the almost mythical story, how the brash, young French vigneron visited the little-known, redundantly named town and fell in preposterous love with a few acres of useless, stone-covered farmland. While the nay-sayers nayed, Christophe Baron deftly turned that field of stones in Walla Walla into the acclaimed Cayuse Vineyards. And the rest, as they say, is history—and a whole lot of spectacular wine.

Over the past 20 years, Christophe has made it his mission to craft food-friendly wines of incredible depth, individuality and character—all from fruit grown entirely using biodynamic farming methods. Here is your chance to be one of the lucky few and purchase this mixed case of exquisite, 90-point+ wines.
