Foxglove
United States, California

We met Jim Varner in 2003 when he was part of a small distributor association, representing the state of California.  At the time, he and his twin brother, Bob, were both distributing French wine in the Bay Area and trying to make it as winemakers in a sea of small winemakers.  Shortly after that, they decided to go full steam ahead with their own project and got out of the distribution business.  We started with them at that time, and it has been a great ride.

 

The Foxglove label was created from fruit mostly from Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County, and allowed the Varners to have a cash-flow wine to make and sell in quantity while they farmed their grapes under the Varner and Neely brands.  Bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Zinfandel.  The Foxglove Chardonnay, in particular, has been heralded in numerous publications.  It has been a successful brand for us for many years, particularly as a glass pour and at high volume at retail.
