generation Multi-Generational Winemaker

It used to be fairly common for wineries to stay in the family, being handed down generation to generation. Now, with corporate expansion, multi-generational wineries are dwindling.

The families that do hold on tend to keep a strong eye on tradition, while constantly looking for ways to improve what they do and innovate to stay relevant. There’s deep roots and deeper knowledge about winemaking and the land the grapes grow on. Not to mention, these families often have strong ties and relationships with others in the industry, giving them access to information, resources, and supplies that are needed to produce the best wines. 

We’re proud to support multi-generational winemakers on Vinebase. Shop our assortment below!
