Our goal is to make wines that evoke clarity:
clarity of place, clarity of type, clarity of purpose.
We believe this is best expressed by using the
classic French varietals and blends, with
methods passed down over generations. We work
within this context to allow Washington vineyards
and terroirs to distinguish themselves. Terroir is
only readily appreciable in a well-formed,
harmonious wine. Structure is the backbone from
which beauty can radiate.
Avennia is inspired by the Roman name for the
city of Avignon, and signifies for us the heart of
Old World winemaking. Our wines are designed
to tease rather than flaunt; pique interest, not
beg for attention. They stand for elegance,
delicacy, purity. Our wines are made to enhance
conversation, not dominate it, and will be a
welcome guest at the table.
We invite you to join our adventure.
