Cary Q Wines

by Cary Quintana

Cary Q Wines is a Hispanic-owned winery handcrafting small lots of California wines that inspire! With a low-intervention approach that focuses on working with organic, or sustainably farmed vineyards, she is all about capturing pure and vibrant varietal expressions. Her aim is to highlight a distinction between time, place, and the diversity of what our micro-climates offer in our beautiful part of the world. Soils and a strong base of healthy grapes are what she believes to be the start of a varietally expressive wine. She also believes in being present and fully hands-on–so yes, these are truly handcrafted wines that include hand harvesting, hand sorting, at times a bit of good ol’ foot treading.

 

 

Cary Quintana

Born and raised in Miami of Cuban descent, Cary Quintana has been living and working in the California industry for 8 years. She works with meticulously farmed sites that highlight organically and sustainably grown fruit, and seeks out conscientious growers and unique microclimates to attain site-specificity.

 

 

A minimalist at heart, Cary produces low intervention wines with philosophies that encourage the purest expression of site, varietal, and vintage. Her curiosity and love for Grenache, Mourvedre, and Iberian varietals like Graciano and Tempranillo are particular passions in her vineyard-designate bottlings.
