Tyson Crowley and Evan Roberts of the Deep Roots Coalition

Taking a Light Touch

written by Carrie Wynkoop of Cellar 503

Tyson Crowley and Evan Roberts are serious wine geeks, but in the best possible way. If you’re lucky enough to spend some time with them in the winery, you’ll find yourself immersed in the best techniques of winemaking with none of the pretension.
You’ll also find yourself talking to two guys who are as passionate about where the grapes come from as they are the process of making wine. In fact, for a pair of guys who don’t own one, they’re pretty obsessed with finding exactly the right vineyard.
As proud members of the Deep Roots Coalition, Tyson and Evan are committed to working with family-owned vineyards that don’t irrigate and practice low-impact farming. The vineyards they partner with are LIVE Certified or certified organic, and they work closely with their growers to ensure the grapes in their wine truly represent the land, climate and season.

When making wine, they take a very light touch—eschewing additives, using native yeasts and neutral oak. As Crowley puts it, “We value purity of expression over stylized wines and hold essential the belief that we cannot improve on nature.”
The 1859 Wine Club will feature Crowley Wines’ 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir in our November shipment, just in time for Thanksgiving.
