“We relish the opportunity of sharing the passion and pride we have for our wines as well as our heritage through your enjoyment of Cubanisimo Vineyards.“
Our venture into the wine industry started with the purchase of a 21-acre parcel evaluated for its vineyard potential in 1986. We planted 8 acres of Pinot Noir on our SE facing hillside as we further developed our estate property in the Willamette Valley. Initially, our focus was on refining our vineyard management, and we would sell our grapes to larger wineries in Oregon such as King Estate, and Erath. It was in our dealings with Erath that we had the opportunity of getting to know our winemaker, Rob Stuart.
In 2003, we decided to forge ahead with the dream by keeping ½ the product from our vineyards to produce our own wines under the label of Cubanisimo Vineyards. Many souls searching took place in the name selection, and label design since we wanted our homage to our Cuban heritage to be a quality product in every way. Cubanisimo means “very Cuban”, and from the beginning, we have committed to developing our wines into the top quality product meriting the name.
