Red Mare Wines’ first harvest with the 2007 vintage resulted in the bottling of 170 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. Since its beginning, Red Mare has remained true to its core mission - discovering premium vineyard sites to deliver uniquely luxurious wines at great prices. We select our grapes from highly sustainable or organic sources, and work with farmers we trust.
Anne Vawter, our founder and Winemaker has 20+ years of experience in the wine industry behind her. She has built a career making wines for small boutique wineries in the Napa Valley. Red Mare's wines are known for their silky tannins, lively acidity, and balance. For all of our wines, she carefully selects every detail and uses old-world techniques.
The magic of Anne's winemaking style lies in the simplicity and framing of silky tannins, which her wines are known for. Anne reminds us not to pursue fads or heavy oak masking but to celebrate the site and the vintage in its own right. Her wines are elegant and balanced, excellent with food, and expressive of place. But, it is the magic of those silky tannins which identify Anne's style.
"Designed to present a measure of austerity and refinement," is how James Laube puts it.
