Bates Ranch is a famed fourth-generation Santa Cruz Mountain vineyard at the foot of Mt. Madonna. A one of a kind rustic property with 22 acres of award-winning Cabernet that grow at 2,100 feet in dry farmed soils that are iron-rich from remnants of volcanic rock. With warm days and cool nights, the terroir produces a rich and complex wine that is leaner, more austere and true to the land than fruit-forward Napa Cabs.
“We created Origin to help our generation see life through a glass of wine. Wine connects people, but we rarely connected with the brands making the wine. While there’s plenty of great wine, the industry is dominated by obscurity and outdated experiences. Origin is a place to discover authenticity, stories, and an understated, yet elevated lifestyle. It’s for those who care about what goes into each bottle, but care much more about a table surrounded by good company. From two friends on opposite coasts, our hope is to share Origin with friends and welcomed strangers in celebration of life well-lived from California to New York. Origin is made in partnership with acclaimed producers, historic vineyards, and contemporary artists and designers. And our commitment is to bring you an experience that is much more than just great wine.”
“Ironically, I find it easier sometimes to source wines that are from 6,000 miles away rather than in my own backyard. I have tasted so many CA Cabernets looking for the right one for us here at Argaux and Amlière, and Origin has really hit the mark. The wine is bold, rich, and quite honestly pretty sexy. It has that structure and flavor you crave when drinking Cabernet without being overpowering and overwhelming. Invite a few friends over, throw on their “Origin Cab” playlist on Spotify, and enjoy!” – Lexi Jones, Director of Imports
