Winemaker Notes

Made from one of the great and most distinct of Washington State's vineyards. High above the Missoula Flood plains, the very cool temperature and ancient soils of the site make some of the best wines in the State; characterized by great acidity and wonderful fruit character.

The Evergreen Riesling combines mineral and slate with flavors of white peach and linden. This wine finishes with wonderful focus and a backbone of mandarin orange.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Though this is calculated at 1.5% residual sugar, it seems quite dry. You’ll like the excellent concentration and bracing minerality, with a mix of green berry and apple flavors. There are also nuances of spice and even a hint of caramel—it' a subtle wine with long-lasting flavors that extend into a dry, complex finish.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Bright, pale gold. Captivating aromas of lemon drop, quince, ripe apple and white flowers. Plush and serious, but with lively acidity giving lift and an impression of weightlessness to the slightly sweet (15 g/l r.s.) flavors of pineapple, white peach, stone and flowers. Finishes fat and persistent, with very good grip.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Silky in texture and lightly sweet, with pretty lemon, pear and floral flavors, hinting at pepper as this lingers nicely. Drink now through 2014.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

Efeste's latest collection begins with 2009 Evergreen Riesling. Light straw-colored, it exhibits a fragrant nose of mineral, baking spices, white peach, and tropical aromas. Just off-dry on the palate with lively acidity, this Kabinett-styled Riesling is ideal for drinking on hot summer days.

Wine monitoring, not wine making. Terrior and a minimal approach make the best wine. We work primarily with the old vines, bringing forth maturity and concentration while maintaining an elegance. Native fermentation encourages lovely earth tones without eclipsing the fruit that is unique to the vineyard, letting the fruit speak for itself. Not unlike art, where beauty and excitement are found in the unique natural abberations. We encourage character. Great wines have personalities.

Efestç, pronounced F-S-T is an acronym for Daniel & Helen Ferrelli – Patrick Smith – and Kevin & Angela Taylor. Daniel, a second generation Italian had been making wine in his garage forever,passing on the tradition of his family to his son-in-law Kevin Taylor. Daniel and Patrick met through business and their friendship blossomed through sharing their passion for wine. One evening Daniel was making dinner for his family at the Taylor house and invited Patrick too. A discussion of Kevin and Daniel’s wine making hobby came up. Patrick knew of some people in the wine industry and, why not start a project together!

They met with Chris Upchurch and Jay Soloff of DeLille Cellars and both decided to come on as consultants and Efestç was born. With a love for all wines but strong interest in Australian wines they took a trip there to discover what made the wine so unique. The Spirit of Australia was discovered and returned were three friends and the idea, not to take yourself too seriously, enjoy your family, friends and anyone else that would like to join you in a glass of wine, breaking of bread and a good laugh
