Things We Resist ... A Blog

One of the first questions we get about Resistance Wine Company is – What are you resisting?

We’re glad you asked!

We want to make (and drink) amazingly good wine and not cringe about what is in it or how it is made.  We resist winemaking practices that sacrifice quality in the name of quantity or profit margin. Look for more from us in the future about how our wine is – and isn’t – grown, made and packaged.
