- The Foster Family, Ben and Tara Sharp, and founding winemakers May-Britt and Denis Malbec
- Alexander Valley, Sonoma County
We established Captûre Wines because we are inspired by our estate vineyard, which rises nearly 2,500 feet above the Alexander Valley floor in Sonoma County, and we shared a vision of crafting a portfolio of world-class, Bordeaux-style wines.
Captûre Wines represents the marriage of time-honored Bordeaux winemaking with the intense fruit character of our organically farmed mountain estate, Tin Cross Vineyards. Renowned winemaking team May-Britt and Denis Malbec, formerly of Château Latour in Bordeaux, create our wines to bring out the rich personality of our terroir. The resulting wines are elegant expressions of depth, nuance and longevity.
When the Foster family first visited the rugged slopes of Pine Mountain, they knew they had discovered the perfect home for their family and the perfect place to grow world-class Bordeaux wine grapes. Along with Ben and Tara Sharp, and founding winemakers May-Britt and Denis Malbec, they launched Captûre Wines in 2008, on a parcel of land that rises from 1,600 to 2,500 feet above the Alexander Valley floor in Sonoma County, California - a picturesque spot with breathtaking views and a rich winegrowing heritage.
The mountain estate, historic Tin Cross Vineyards, has been planted to vine since early homesteaders first settled here in 1855. In keeping with the legacy of these pioneers, the team works hand-in-hand with the earth, using sustainable farming methods that result in mountain-grown wine grapes of uncommon intensity.
In the winery, time-honored Bordeaux methods from our renowned winemaking team give these grapes their finest expression for wines of depth, nuance and complexity.
Captûre Wines - Bordeaux tradition, frontier spirit.
