Entre Deux Mères literally translates from the French as “Between Two Mothers”. Our friendship was initiated by our children and grew through a love of wine, work and play.
In September of 2000, we were fortunate enough to secure a few tons of Cabernet Sauvignon from a small grower in Oakville. The grapes were hand picked and sorted, and we crushed and fermented them in small lots. Our little project had begun. Our philosophy of making wine is similar to our philosophy of raising children – give them a lot of tender loving care, nurture always, then let them go on to express themselves and become the unique individuals they were meant to be. We believe that our gentle handling and minimalist intervention in winemaking yields unique wines that are elegant and balanced – a true expression of their roots.
Now as we enter our 12th year, our children are almost all grown up, and our project remains exactly as we envisioned: small, hands on, and honest. We couldn’t do what we do without the hard work and dedication of our growers and the many vineyard workers whose labor we respect and admire. We feel it shows in our wine.
