From fermentation to barrel and finally to bottle our goal is to stay true to our ideologies. Our sanitation process, the usability of our winery, attention to detail and sensory analysis are a few of the tools we incorporate into our daily routine. Strict winemaking, cellar and lab practices drive our goals of making the best wine we can.
The art and science of winemaking is a continuous learning adventure, again we look at the law of cause and effect. We make our decisions based on the science of the lab and the outcomes of what has proven effective. The true balance of winemaking is achieved when science and art collide creating a bottle of wine well worth drinking.
Matured in 100% French oak barrels from seven of the top Coopers in the world. Each barrel is its own wine and we rack and return back into the same barrel using a pain staking gravity process.
We get to know the quality and character of each barrel over several months before it is even consided to be part of our flagship wines.
Once the best barrels are selected we spend several months making each wine. We taste five blends at a time double blind, using triple digit random numbers to ensure no bias.
Each flight we select a top wine from the five and then construct another four blends around that for the next tasting. This process continues for several months until we eventually choose the final wine.
This is the essence of what sets Betz Family apart and why we need to be a limited production winery.
Our wines are built to age for many years, but can be enjoyed upon release. We suggest that a wine under 5 years of age is double decanted to ensure the aromas and flavor are unleashed for your full enjoyment.
Our wines should be served at between 62 to 65 degrees F. In general red wines are drunk too warm and white wines too cold.
