The Story of 3 Clowns Cabernet

bottle-3-clowns-drawingThe Three Clowns story is a story about friendship.

Since 1994 we’ve been lucky enough to have three good friends come to work every harvest with us. They take the month off from their “real jobs” and slog through the cold, long nights of harvest. With their spirits and witty quips – always keeping us laughing, the trio quickly was dubbed the “Three Clowns”.

Eventually, they told us they wanted to make their own wine. But not Pinot Noir. Oh no, they had their hearts set on a Bordeaux-style blend.

Of course, after so many years of friendship, we were happy to help. Enter more great friends – the folks who own the esteemed Klipsun Vineyard in Washington. We were able to get a little of their fruit for the Clowns, and the rest, as they say is history.
