It’s exciting to imagine that a young boy’s 8th grade science project could turn into a world-class wine, but that’s exactly how this wine began! Many years ago Will Jarvis, son of the owners, made wine for his 8th grade science project. After it was bottled and had aged ten years, Will was old enough to appreciate the wine and happily noted that its unique, fruity taste had been preserved through the years. Encouraged by his early success, Will repeated his experiment in the Jarvis winery cave environment, again using small barrels. The robust fruit flavor so astounded our Founding Winemaker, Dimitri Tchelistcheff, that a new wine was born.
