689 Cellars

Napa Valley, California, United States

689 Cellars is a winery that carries a unique story dating back to 2008. It was founded by Curtis McBride and Kent Rasmussen, who both had extensive experience in the wine industry. Curtis had spent years marketing and selling wines globally, while Kent had honed his winemaking skills crafting exceptional wines in California. Inspired by their travels to the Far East, they decided to incorporate elements of Asian numerology into their winery, giving rise to the name 689 Cellars.

In Asian culture, the number “6” embodies the concepts of happiness and fluidity, while the number “8” symbolizes wealth and prosperity. Similarly, the number “9” signifies longevity and eternity. During their travels, Curtis and Kent were deeply influenced by the significance of these numbers and recognized the potential to infuse their winery with their positive energy. Hence, the name 689 Cellars serves as a homage to these numbers, encapsulating the ideals and positive forces they represent.

Their passion for wine and their extensive travels around the globe have served as inspiration for their diverse range of wines.
