From the winery: Brutto Nobile or the “Ugly Noble” is Syrah from the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA. The Rocks District sits just below the Washington border in the Walla Walla AVA. The terroir from the small AVA is as unique as the Willamette Valley. As soon as you stick your nose into a glass of this Syrah, you know exactly where it came from. You can smell the river rocks. Those rocks, that the AVA are named for, are baseball-size, blueish, brown, and go 100 feet down before there is any sort of hardpan. The vines translate that terroir into black olives, violets, and a lovely aroma of wet stone linger from start to finish. Who wouldn't want to drink this with a lamb tagine?

The Columbia Gorge and Columbia Valley have some of the most spectacular and diverse landscapes anywhere in the world—from lush forests to high desert in less than 40 miles. This is where you will find Graham Markel, the winemaker behind the Buona Notte wines. Buona Notte is very much a family affair and the wines themselves are inspired by the family’s many trips to northern Italy. Many of Graham's wines come from Italian varieties but like the best Italian wines, they are crystal clear representations of their origin.

Graham spent many years working at Terra Antica and Hiyu Farms, where he learned many of the ancient winemaking techniques he employs at Buona Notte. Years of working for these trailblazing producers gave him the insight and experience to produce wine that is as unique as ever but grounded by classic structure and complexity. There is controlled wildness to these wines that make them spellbinding.
