We’re family for the rest of our lives, we have a beautiful baby and we love making wine. We’ll continue doing it.
It’s just something we grew up with. My parents were always, well, wine enthusiasts, and they took us on wine trips. I went to
Burgundywhen I was 14 and Bordeaux when I was 16. Kurt Russell, my stepdad, started making wine a few years back up in the Santa Rita Hills, and he kept telling me and Matt (Bellamy) that we had to get up and blend with them and do a harvest. We ended slogging up there, and that was it. It was too much fun. It was something we enjoyed doing together, just a wonderful pastime and incredible creative experience.
We spend most of our summer in Europe with the kids, and rosé is pretty much what we drink. So we started with rosés, and that’s still my favorite. I love
Sauvignon Blanc, and everyone told me not to attempt a California-style Sauvignon Blanc. I said, ‘Why not?’ So we made it. It’s quite drinkable and has this grassiness to it. It’s interesting, so we are going to try that one more time. And my dad’s Pinots are really beautiful, so we decided to do a single clone. I also love Cab. That’s my jam!
