Hook & Ladder’s founder, Cecil De Loach, found great success by following a simple guiding principal: Make wines that people like to drink. In order to make exceptional wine, it’s helpful to start with exceptional fruit. One of the best ways to ensure the highest quality grapes is to grow them yourself. As a farmer first, Cecil remained true to the fruit he grew when crafting his wines. Continuing this tradition, Hook & Ladder wines strive to showcase the vineyards from which they are made.

Cecil’s grandson, Jason De Loach, is now the winemaker. He is careful to emphasize Hook & Ladder’s estate fruit, and uses a balanced approach to all elements of winemaking, from harvest to oak barrel aging. The entire Hook & Ladder family team is proud to share these hand-made estate wines with discriminating wine lovers around the world.  Hook & Ladder Wines showcase the quality and character of the Russian River Valley that only four decades of experience and a family’s commitment can deliver.

After spending his first 9 years in the wine industry at Charles Krug Winery in St. Helena, Andrew Moore developed a passion for crafting small lot, premium wines. In 2010, with a “the wine glass is half full” type of attitude, Andrew’s plans for owning his own winery began with a single barrel of Russian River Pinot Noir produced at home.

With Andrew’s wife, Julie, and 2 young children, Kaylie and Kyle by his side for each aspect of production over the next few years, K Squared Cellars began forming. Intently focused on the task at hand, 5 years and many punch downs later, in 2015 K Squared Cellars acquired winery and tasting room space. That single barrel of Pinot Noir and a dream of having their own family winery was realized!

That is why Marimar Torres selected this privileged location to “export” the Torres family legacy of fine wines to California. The essence of Marimar Estate is the limited production of cutting-edge wine from its own, organically farmed vineyards while respecting the environment. The core team becomes an extended family where we complement and nurture each other, working together in a friendly atmosphere to position our brand among the elite wines of California.

DELOACH VINEYARDS *

Santa Rosa, CA 95401
707-755-3300

As a pioneering producer and winegrower of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, DeLoach Vineyards has been experimenting with and perfecting the best combinations of soil, rootstock and clones for over three decades. In 2003, the Boisset family brought generations of sustainable winemaking experience from Burgundy, France to California’s Russian River Valley and pulled up the estate vineyards that had just produced Wine Enthusiast magazine’s 2004 wine of the year: DeLoach Vineyards 30th Anniversary Cuvee Pinot Noir. The award-winning vineyards were replanted with cover crops in order to revitalize the soil and in the meantime, DeLoach partnered with winegrowers equally dedicated to and passionate about eco-friendly farming practices and the production of high-quality wines. Wine & Spirits magazine named DeLoach Vineyards a Top 100 Winery for the twelfth time in the winery’s history in 2012.
