Who We Are
Wine has always been a big part of my life, but growing up in Napa Valley I took it for granted. When Kyle and I met in college, I happily tagged along as his interest in craft beer led us to seek out unique wines. Seeing his love of wine develop reinvigorated a passion in me. Since we met ten years ago living in Los Angeles, we’ve loved entertaining and introducing friends to new wines, and rosé is always our go-to. It’s light, versatile and complex, but doesn’t take itself too seriously.
To us, wine is about more than great quality and taste, but about sharing it with our friends and the lasting memories we create, together. No other wine does this better than rosé. It’s our passion for rosé and creating these experiences that called us to make Paper Planes so we could share this on a larger scale.
Now on our fourth vintage and living in Napa full time, we are thrilled to be a part of the next generation of winemakers looking to share great wine with all the friends we're making along the way.
