Naoi Cailini Óga is a small, estate vineyard and winery in the Columbia Valley AVA of Washington State. Each plant in the vineyard is lovingly hand farmed by the owner, Nancy Thurston and a small crew of family, friends, and co-workers. Together, with her Winemaker, David Stephenson, they have produced a smooth, full bodied Carménère and beautiful, dry Rosé of Carménère.
Nancy is an artist and a wine aficionado who really loves making things. Working in the vineyard is a new found passion realizing that what is done in the vineyard goes into the bottle. Happiness is surrounding herself with beautiful things - and a great glass of wine.
Winemaker David Stephenson has been crafting critically acclaimed wines for over 20 years. His passion for small lot, meticulously tended and intensely personal wines has culminated in the Estate wines of Naoi Calini Óga. Exceptional terroir, intimate care of every vine, barrel and bottle, and a setting that showcases the remarkable result of these combined elements is a dream come true for David.
