After years of wanting to experiment with their own fruit, Cheryl finally convinced Randy to make some wine. Not having any equipment, the pair crushed
that historic first barrel with their own feet. Following a fruitful romp in that first bin of grapes, Randy and Cheryl stumbled upon the name Red Soles while
admiring each other’s red, grape-stained feet. That first crush of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel grapes later became the founding partner’s premier vintage, their
2004 Kick-Off. This uniquely successful, wine-growing and wine-making duo happily run the business themselves. Each wine in their line-up is Estate grown,
and the duo is proud of the fact that they do not source their wine grapes from any vineyard other than their own.
There is great pride in making consistently award-winning wines from the same fruit that is grown for the farming business clients. With an average
annual production of 2,000 cases of wine, our wines are a rare treat. These wines aren’t typically found on grocery store shelves or restaurant wine
lists, though there are a few exceptions, you are more likely to discover Red Soles wines being shared with you by a friend and that is one of our
favorite parts of being such a small, boutique winery.
