Winemaking Philosophy:
Although the name derives from the Roman historian Pliny the Elder’s observation: “In Vino Veritas” ~ “In Wine There Is Truth,” we believe that the truth in our wine is in our grapes. Veritas remains True to the terroir and the varietal and makes wine that is an authentic expression of the beautiful place that they are grown.
