Wine In The Pursuit Of True Enjoyment

Wine In The Pursuit Of True Enjoyment
Two young vintners redefine what it means to be GReedy in the wine world

greedywinesBeing greedy isn’t necessarily something your mom would advocate, but she also wouldn’t advise drinking subpar vino. Good thing we’re covered on both ends. GReedy Wines, brainchild of Greg Urmini and Ross Reedy, will make you think twice about what it means to be greedy with your wine.

GReedy refers to Reedy and Urmini’s insatiable desire to produce wine unlike any other. According to the winemakers, GReedy means pursuing what you truly enjoy and experiencing its fullest potential. Now that’s a wine philosophy we can get behind.

GReedy’s vineyards are located off No Name Road in Alexander Valley, a stone’s throw from the Russian River. The property was purchased by Ross’ grandfather in 1969, so not only do these boys have know-how and talent, they also work with some of the best product Sonoma County grows. And it shows. The two current release wines are outstanding! The 2008 cabernet sauvignon ($27) is one of the most drinkable cabs we’ve tasted. It would be incredible with anything grilled, but it is also ideal to sip on chilly evenings for head-to-toe warmth. The 2010 sauvignon blanc ($20) was so tasty it is sold out, but look for their new vintage release in mid May.

The GReedy boys are making a conscious effort to remain boutique in size, so snap up your share of the juice. You can find all the wines here. And be sure keep your eye on the GReedy boys as they expand their offerings. They’re poised to show the world what it really means to be GReedy.

If GReedy means pursuing what you truly enjoy, how do you get GReedy? Tell us below.
