ABOUT
ULLAGE (UH-LIDJ): SIMPLY PUT, IT’S THE SPACE REMAINING IN THE BOTTLE BETWEEN THE WINE AND THE CORK.
THERE IS ‘SPACE BETWEEN’ ALL THE THINGS WE CARE ABOUT IN LIFE: FRIENDS, FAMILY, LOVED ONES
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, FROM TIME TO TIME WINE CAN BRING US CLOSER
WE ARE A SMALL CRAFT PRODUCTION WINE BRAND IN SONOMA COUNTY OPERATED BY WIFE & HUSBAND MINNESOTA TRANSPLANTS, MOLLY FEENEY-KOCHEVAR & PAUL KOCHEVAR.

 

FRESH OFF OF THE UC DAVIS CAMPUS IN 2016 FROM STUDYING WINE MAKING, PAUL WAS EAGER TO GET TO WORK IN ANY CAPACITY TO LEARN THE BIZ. THE NOW CURRENT DAY ASSISTANT WINEMAKER FOR DUTCHER CROSSING, PAUL, CUT HIS TEETH WORKING WITH LOCAL WINEMAKER, JAMES MACPHAIL, IN WEST SONOMA COUNTY.

 

ALSO EAGER TO GET INTO THE BIZ WIFE, MOLLY, (AKA – MAGS), A RETIRED PROFESSIONAL DOG TRAINER JUMPED IN HEAD FIRST INTO ALL THING WINE. IT TOOK ALL OF ONE, MAYBE TWO, SECONDS FOR MOLLY TO DOMINATE WINE HOSPITALITY AND MAKE LIFELONG FRIENDS WITH EVERY LAST SOUL (HUMAN OR CANINE) IN SONOMA COUNTY.

 

PHILOSOPHY
FUN, UNIQUE, UNEXPECTED AND UNCONVENTIONAL COME TO MIND.
ASKING WHY NOT INSTEAD OF WHY?
WE LOVE PIVOTING AS NEEDED IN THE EVER CHANGING WINE BIZ LANDSCAPE SEEKING TO MAKE WINES THAT EXCITE AND SURPRISE.
AND WORKING HARD EVERYDAY TO LISTEN TO OUR HEARTS, STAYING IN THE MOMENT AND ULTIMATELY HAVING FUN.

 

FROM US TO U
IT’S U THAT ALLOWS US TO DO WHAT WE LOVE.  YES, WE MEAN YOU!
WE ARE EVER EVOLVING AND TRYING TO MAKE THE BEST DECISIONS THAT HELP US STAY ECO-FRIENDLY, SUSTAINABLE AND AFFORDABLE.
WHAT WE MEAN TO SAY IS THAT WE TRULY APPRECIATE U!
WE KNOW YOU HAVE A LOT OF CHOICES OUT THERE TO PURCHASE, CONSUME AND SHARE.
WE ARE GRATEFUL TO BE EVEN A SMALL PART OF YOUR  LIVES!

WE LOVE YOU ALL!

PAUL & MOLLY
