"Marilyn and I wanted to produce our own wines for some time, but we wanted to do something special...
... in May of 2001, we finally visited France's Rhone Valley. It was a magical time. The wines we sampled were amazing, like nothing we'd ever tasted. Oh, we had tried these classic varietals before but never with such vibrancy, such depth of character. These vintages were from small vintners who sell every bottle locally to friends and family. We knew then the type of wines we had to try to make.
We hope when you taste our wines you experience the same revelation we did. Please visit us soon..."

Marilyn Remark Winery named top 10 Small Wine Brands
Wine Business Monthly came out with their "top 10" of the year lists in the last issue. One of the catagories was, "top 10 small brands in the United States" Marilyn Remark winery was on that list. While the lists represent wineries that produce wines of overall quality they featured one wine from each winery in the issue. While my reds, particularly the Grenache, get a lot of press I was happy that they featured the 2007 Roussanne.
