LaRue Wines

LaRue Wines produces ultra-premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay exclusively from the Sonoma Coast. The winery was founded in 2009 by Katy Wilson, the name, LaRue, pays tribute to the bold and independent woman who inspired Katy’s entrepreneurial spirit: her great-grandmother, Veona LaRue Newell. Known for its cool conditions and windy roads leading to remote coastal vineyards, the Sonoma Coast offered the perfect canvas for crafting the style of wines that Katy has always gravitated towards Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that is complex and vibrant with elegant acidity; wines that drink well when young, but also age gracefully; wines that effortlessly showcase their site and vintage conditions.

 

 

Katy Wilson

With her great-grandmother as a role model, Katy worked her way from being a small-town farm girl to becoming an accomplished winemaker. It is her passion for making wines that are complex and vibrant with elegant acidity that drives her intense involvement in every aspect of LaRue Wines.

 

 

Katy’s journey to becoming a winemaker has taken her both near and far. From her first Pinot Noir harvest at Testarossa Winery in California to traversing the Northern and Southern Hemispheres for harvests, she eventually settled in for some time at Flowers Vineyard & Winery. At Flowers, Katy’s talents were quickly recognized as she worked her way up from harvest enologist to assistant winemaker. It was during this experience that Katy fell head over heels in love with the Sonoma Coast.
