Chuck Pifer, Owner / Vintner
I've been making and blending wines since 1993, and I've even managed to win a few dozen local awards along the way. While people look to repeated award winning as evidence of the consistency and quality of my blends, it was a happy accident that got me started on the quest to bring together wines from all over the world.
The motivation for creating Cosmos Cellars came from necessity, as do most new concepts. In 1997, most Napa Valley vintners were faced with the same challenge: a HUGE tannic cabernet. I had to find a way to soften and balance the wine, because I wasn't about to wait 20 years to start drinking it. So I began exploring what wines from other countries might bring to a blend. And it was a Merlot and South American Malbec that brought me my answer (and a gold medal for this new Meritage). I was amazed by the textures and complexities that could be mastered by blending international varietals.
So, with the help of my wife Jane and my three daughters Kristina, Bre Ann, and Stephanie, Cosmos Cellars sets off in the spirit of adventure to bring together wines from around the world.
I hope you will enjoy these wines of beautiful harmony, which I want to share. Buy a bottle. Drink a glass. Taste the World.
