About Us / Stage Left Cellars History: Great fruit equals great wine. And while we're fans of new winemaking technology, for all intents and purposes, we're old school. That whole saying about 80% of a great wine is made in the vineyard? We tend to think it's more like 90%. Some think we say that to keep our winemaker's ego in check. No comment. Everything at Stage Left is done by hand, in small lots. We hand-pick and hand-sort every last cluster of fruit, and only the best raw material makes it through to production. We don't use any beastly pumps or augers, either. It's extra work, but we eliminate excess handling.
