For more than a decade, LaRue Wines' proprietor and winemaker, Katy Wilson, has been devoted to showcasing small lot Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sourced exclusively from some of the top vineyard sites on the Sonoma Coast. The name, LaRue, pays tribute to the bold and independent woman who inspired Katy's entrepreneurial spirit: her great grandmother, Veona LaRue Newell. Guided by a steadfast, non-interventionist winemaking philosophy, Katy focuses on wines that drink well when young, but also age gracefully; wines that effortlessly showcase their site and vintage conditions.

 Following in the footsteps of Veona -  feisty, go-getter with enviable moxie - Katy’s natural disposition to follow her instincts and pursue her passions came to bear at only 26 years old when she unveiled her official first vintage of LaRue Wines
