TESTIMONIAL

My experience with custom crush is that you usually get either a high level of organizational structure with no flexibility or lots of flexibility with no organization. While we all have our own leanings when it comes to structure or flexibility, most outcomes, wine making or otherwise, are better when there is an outline of structure along with the flexibility to change the plan as inputs change. At Laird Family Estate the high quality of relationships there, from the management on down to the cellar allows for both structural organization and flexibility and I value that very highly.
