Curtis, a friend of our wine store in Calgary for many years, personifies the relaxed and confident essence of the California winemaker, focusing purely on the quality of the wine. Keep reading to learn more about this experience, 689 Cerralrs and our premium offers!

The Story of 689 Cellars

Established in 2008, 689 Cellars began when Curtis McBride and Kent Rasmussen, beverage industry experts, united their passion for classic California wines with a touch of Chinese numerology, making '689' a symbol of luck and prosperity.

This unique winery is both California classic and innovative trailblazer, and it’s a brand that we’re proud to support!

Our In-Depth Journey with Curtis McBride

Our visits with Curtis have always been enlightening, covering topics from winemaking techniques to barrel toasting and even new cork technologies.

Cork has hosted Curtis many times over the years, and we're proud to have stocked his bottles since Day One! He's the quintessential Cali winemaker - relaxed, confident, and eschews pomp to focus on the juice we're tasting.

His approach blends traditional methods and modern innovations, ensuring each vintage uniquely represents the year's character. Curtis’s extensive knowledge, especially of California vintages, is invaluable, given his experience across Napa, Sonoma, Lodi, and Paso Robles.
