Fun Facts: The main thing to know about Cain wines is that they are not “made” to create a dramatic first impression; rather, our goal is to create a lasting impression. This can only be done through less wine-“making” not more. The process begins in the vineyard—the most important element—and it continues through the cellar, on into the bottle as the wine continues to develop. We arrive at our goal only when you have time to sit with your glass and to enjoy the wine during the course of a meal.
