Lazer Beams

Joe Chepolis - Vigneron | Maître de Chai | Enfant Terrible

Taking an ever-growing passion for sniffing out compelling wines of all stripes, this enfant terrible traded a career in the cycling/ action sports industry in Salt Lake City for one in the burgeoning So. Oregon wine world. Lucked into a winery job, got offered some fruit, learned at the School of Hard Knocks™, inherited/commandeered a couple of vineyards and thus Sound & Vision was born.

Carmen Nydegger - The Bread & Butter

Carmen traded in a long career in Film/television production for the unknown. Ever a serial entrepreneur on the side, always in search of a passion project, and ready to "take the bull by the horns” , she landed in the Rogue Valley and watched as the path began to unfold. With an eye for recognizing rare opportunity, and the guts to say yes, she has paved the way for this new adventure.

Cellar 503 Tasting Notes

Sound & Vision, Talent, Oregon
2022 Vermentino

The 2022 Vermentino comes from the Layne Vineyard on the Kubli Bench in the Applegate Valley. A few years ago, Roger and Cameron grafted Vermentino onto some 30+ year old Cab vines and while some of you may be shaking your heads, let me tell you, it was a wise decision. This stuff is bonkers. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in Drunk Turtle amphora. Native yeast. Killer texture. Think citrus, mango, lemongrass, spice, and lazer beams.

Only 90 cases made. To do this right, click the Sound and Vision link above and then click on their website link to listen to the soundtracks they've made for us to ensure that we're properly vibin' with the wine.
