A winery that focuses on giving back, Upsidedown Wine, founded by Seth Kizke, has crafted some great new releases. Upsidedown Wine has their Pour it Forward campaign which gives back through every bottle of their wine sold. When you order their wine direct or join their wine club, 20% of the proceeds go to support these non-profit charity organizations including the You and the Brave Foundation.
The wines in their Gold Drop Collection are sourced from the Kizke Family Vineyard located on Candy Mountain in Richland, next to Red Mountain. Head winemaker Seth Kizke chooses to use indigenous yeasts as well as minimal intervention in his great new wines. Look for the 2013 Upsidedown Wine ‘GSM’ Red Wine (WWB, 91), which is an outstanding release that shows wonderful flavor and aromatic range.
