About The Winery
Resistance Wine Company focuses on small, sustainably-farmed vineyards and small batch, minimally invasive wines personally tended throughout the vinification process. We resist industrial-scale winemaking and wines. We’re confident that the extra care we put into each bottle is reflected in the taste and experience.
