LOW IMPACT WINEMAKING.
HIGH IMPACT CAUSES.
ABOUT OUR WINERY
Ricochet = Bouncing Back
Ricochet Wine Company started with the focus on community. Wine IS community: We open bottles of wine to share with others. Wine is social.
So, there are two aspects to Ricochet--the winemaking, and the purpose.
Ricochet practices low-impact winemaking. This means that we strive to limit additives and interventions so long as the integrity of the grape, the varietal character, the terroir...so long as those are preserved. We are low-sulfur. We do not use enzymes to extract color. We only filter wines if absolutely necessary. Ricochet aims to make wines that are sophisticated. Wine with tension and nuance and layers and fruit and...all the things.
Ricochet aims to be part of the local and regional community. Five percent of all profits are donated to social-justice, non-profit organizations. Ricochet is happy to be linked with The Remnant Initiatives, based in Newberg, OR. This organization helps newly released, formerly incarcerated citizens of Yamhill County to get adequate clothing, jobs, housing and a sense of stability.
