    Winemaker Notes

    This beautiful and fragrant Rose is dominated by aromas of red berries and rose petals. The raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb and peach wrap around amazing acidity with a dry, crisp, refreshing finish.

We work with two top sustainably farmed Estate vineyards in California to produce wines that are unique, have a sense of place, express terroir, and are not your everyday blends. Our goal is to create wines that excite the palate and drive you to want to experience our future wines .

    Tucker Spear has been in the wine business for 18+ years and has worked with some of the top wineries in California. By working with world class winemakers such as Steve Leveque (Chalk Hill, Hall Napa Valley), Heidi Barrett (Screaming Eagle, Fantesca, Dalla Valle, La Sirena), and Patrick Muran (Niner Wine Estates, Blackjack) Tucker has learned stylistically what to look for in wines and those qualities are expressed in the two Preston Parker blends.

    Having worked in sales for the past 15 years Sarah has worked with distributers and suppliers in various industries. Since having children 2 years ago, Sarah left the daily grind to focus on her family.

    Our family; Tucker, Sarah, Preston, Parker, and Tyson (our yorkie) are excited to introduce the Preston Parker wines to you. We hope you enjoy the wines!

    Napa Valley

    View all wine

    One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

    The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

    Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

    Rosé Wine

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
