Pure • Natural • Full of Complexity
From the soil, we work to the grapes we grow, to the way we bottle. Replica produces wines that are pure, natural, and full of complexity, just as Mother Nature intended.
Wine, by Nature
At our core, we believe that wine should taste the way that Mother Nature intended. Replica aims to bottle only the flavors found in nature through the natural expression of fruit - allowing us to produce only wine in its purest, most natural form. As a recipient of the Clean Label Project Purity Award, we pride ourselves on sharing a product free of contaminants.
We evaluate the top selling premium brands and identify what makes them so unique and delicious. Our award-winning winemakers use our proprietary methodology to dive deep into the taste and aroma profiles such as oak, heat, tannins, floral and fruity flavors as well as spice and smoke. We use these findings to determine the best taste and aroma profiles for each of our Replica varietals based on consumer preference.
Replica is committed to protecting our natural environment and supports the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation to help fight against colony collapse due to human activity - all while making wine of exceptional quality.
Our label is designed in tribute to the beautiful Xerces butterfly, one of the first and most well-known butterflies in the United States lost entirely due to human causes. Replica works directly with our farmers to provide creative alternatives to using pesticides. We embrace continuous improvement and will work to provide you with the purest wine of the finest quality.
