At Bellingham we believe that great wines are made in the vineyard. That is why source only the finest grapes and nurture them from vine to bottle. In order to preserve the natural fruit characteristics of individual grape cultivars, we lavish time and attention on each wine throughout the production process. We place a high premium on mouthfeel and believe in subtle oak maturation to enhance the structure and complexity of our wines. By following this method of minimal intervention and maximum attention to detail, we are able to produce distinctive, complex wines that are both expressive of their vineyard origin and complementary to a wide range of cuisine.
Wine of Origin:
Our winemaker, Richard Duckitt, is very serious about wine, so it came as a surprise when he announced that he was developing a light wine until we learned his inspiration: “…even though we always have plenty of fine wine at home, my wife used to go out every week and buy light wine in an effort to be healthy. What annoyed me was that she had to sacrifice so much of what makes wine worth drinking. So, I became determined to make a really extraordinary Bellingham light wines that I can enjoy too.”
