NORTHERN CALIFORNIA – Our home
From our home in Graton and our satellite wineries in Napa and the Russian River Valley, we can craft anything that can be imagined within the realm of wine and spirits. Curiosity drives us and we are constantly challenging ourselves to innovate and improve. We tinker and incubate new ideas with one goal in mind – to blow our consumers’ minds.
As with our west county neighbors, we’re down to earth and approachable. After all, our founder, Derek Benham got his start in the industry by selling wine out of the trunk of his ’67 Mustang. Our winery is not an homage to ancient civilizations or architectural wonders. We are winemakers and distillers and we invest in the best possible equipment and skilled employees to craft wines and spirits of quality and distinction.
We foster a set of beliefs, spearheaded by Derek, of sustainable production. We are proud that Purple Wine + Spirits is one of the most eco-friendly, water efficient and sustainable wineries in the industry. Graton Distilling Company has tapped into the sustainable milestones achieved by the winery and operates in an environmentally responsible manner.
