What's in a name?


We often get asked about the meaning of the names of our wines and labels.  Our wines definitely have very interesting names and back stories.  Here is just one example:


The label from our Besadien Pinot Noir from Oregon came about because we wanted a label to depict the beauty and nature of the Willamette valley.  We were actually searching for something related to trees or a forest when we came upon Kristo Dagorov's artwork (lips series).  We thought this was the perfect label to depict the wine's complexity.  The word, Besadien, is a play on the Spanish word beso, which means "kiss," which fit the label perfectly!
