Since its inception in 1994, Castle Rock Winery has built an enviable reputation for producing high quality wines at affordable prices for discerning wine lovers. This winning formula is highly successful, as proven by an increasing number of customers and members of the wine press, who have given the wines glowing reviews. The company is one of the fastest growing in the industry, having sold 440,000 cases of wine in 2008, and expecting to sell over 500,000 cases in 2009.
Castle Rock's wines are carefully made from grapes grown in the most prestigious areas of the West Coast states - California (Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Mendocino County, Monterey County, Alexander Valley), Oregon (Willamette Valley), and Washington (Columbia Valley). The company has always focused on making wines with specific appellations in order to allow the local qualities of the wine to be appreciated by connoisseurs.
The wines are made and bottled at wineries boasting state-of-the-art equipment, located in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Oregon's Willamette Valley, and Washington’s Columbia Valley. Distribution throughout all states of the United States is through a comprehensive network of fine wine distributors.
Castle Rock is committed to a business practice of keeping overhead costs to a minimum. This means that the company does not employ a large staff of employees, has no elaborate facilities or real estate, and operates with a very modest promotional budget. As a result, funds are channeled to where they can do the most good, into the quality of the wine.
