The sound of a crowded bar full of happy patrons late at night is the same all over the world, a sign of good times and happy memories. That sound is our spirit animal.
We're an independent wine company. That means we fund this ourselves, own it 100%, and have no one to answer to but ourselves. We make wine because it is our artistic medium, our professional mode of expression, and it was important to us to not have to compromise our vision or our wines in any way. This is, in our opinion, the only way to make a truly honest beverage that we can be proud to share with you. It also makes this much more enjoyable and soul-satisfying for us.
We make wine meant for drinking. We certainly appreciate those special bottles pulled from the depths of a curated cellar, but we really just want you to drink our stuff.
Like now. And often.
Stylistically, our wines are clean tasting, have no strong oak presence, and are generally on the dry and fruity side of things.
We are Peter and Andrew. Between us, we have twenty years of beverage industry experience, which is a polite way of saying we have no real career prospects and enjoy drinking. Friendly Noise is our way of enjoying the process, the community, the agriculture, and the art on our own terms. We put a lot of thought, love and energy in to everything we do here, and we hope you can get to know us through our efforts!
