About us

The Havenscourt Story
Wine making is sometimes guided by a preconceived notion of a wine’s taste profile and how the nuances of a particular vintage should be expressed. Many fine wines are produced using this process, but at Havenscourt we take a different approach. We believe that wines are best enjoyed with meals and that the right pairings will enhance both the food and the wine. Therefore, our approach to wine making is to “start with the plate and work back to the glass”. In other words, we search for flavor profiles and wine styles that compliment popular foods and make meals a complete dining experience.

How does this influence our wines and their flavor profiles? Extended, cool fermentations help maintain the acidity that makes our red wines well balanced and food friendly. Havenscourt reds are built around soft tannins, which dramatically increase the food pairing possibilities. Oak barrel aging is used to add nuances of delicate spice while softening the tannin and helping to ensure that each release is ready to enjoy when it leaves the winery.
We hope that Havenscourt adds a little pleasure to your meal.
