My wife Laura is the kindest person I know. Somehow she has enough love in her heart to raise eight children, three dogs, two horses, two cats and even an orphaned cow. Despite all the organized chaos, she still finds a way to think of others... whether it is volunteering at schools, running a soup kitchen, or just practicing random acts of kindness.

It was a typical crazy weekend (six basketball games, four soccer matches, and an equestrian event) spent scrambling from one place to another in our 1966, 21-window Volkswagen "hippie van." We squeezed in a stop at our local Starbucks drive-thru and, as was her tradition, Laura paid for the double chocolate chip frappuccino the car behind us had ordered. The kids all smiled as they watched the joyous reaction of the lucky recipient. 

That's when I realized we needed to do something more. What better way to do it than to share great wine with you! If the simple act of buying a stranger a cup of coffee can make someone's day, what can happen if we really set our minds to making a difference.

So while our family is large, our vision is larger. We truly believe the smallest act of kindness has a ripple effect that can help change the world. 50% of our net profits will be donated to charity, both locally and across the world. Enjoy our wine knowing every sip is helping make this world a better place!

PEACE OUT! Scott & Laura Burton & Family

As Indiana's only locally-owned California winery, we handcraft our wines in the heart of one of the world's best wine-growing regions, Napa Valley. Why California? First, it's groovy so we naturally dig it, and second, the wines from there are simply awesome!

From Sonoma's fog laden Russian River Valley, bayside in Carneros, or 2,000 feet above the valley at our Howell Mountain get the picture.

We invite you to join us in our mission, and guarantee you will enjoy the wine while you do so!
