The Wine at a glance
The portfolio of Five Rows focuses on 6 main varietals that have been selected based on their unique style and expression of the Lowrey Vineyard, as well as their characteristic representation of the St. David's Bench Appellation. Pinot Noir accounts for the majority of our planting while Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, Shiraz, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc make up the remaining rows.
Through a focus on balanced vineyard management, thinning and hand work, our yields are very low, resulting in only small batches of wine being crafted. It's our belief that this concentration results in fruit and ultimately wine that is highly concentrated with the character of the terroir — the soil, minerality, local flowers and occasional tears in the pinot.
We hope you will enjoy our wine and explore the variability of the nature of the wine in the years to come. We wish to invite you to become engaged in the evolution of Five Rows — get to know us, our land and our wine because without you, there is no winery.
The Lowrey family has farmed the area for 5 generations. Current generations, Howard Lowrey and his son Wes Lowrey tend to the vineyard with a focus on achieving the most characteristic and complex examples that their varietals can produce.
Due to the reality of crafting very small quantities of wine, we are limited to offer tastings on weekends between 11am - 5pm, May 1 to December 31 or during the week by appointment only.
We’re currently able to provide tasting of our Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s difficult for us to manage large groups and please no buses – when you get here you’ll see why.
We also encourage potential customers to visit our very supportive sommeliers and establishments. They are serving some of our releases that they consider to be signatures of our winery.
Purchasing Our Wine
To purchase any of our small releases, we recommend you contact us via phone or email. We try to encourage you to purchase in increments of cases of six because of the logistics of delivery and storage. It's also recommended that you cellar our reds to realize the full possibilities that our vintages have to offer over time.
We know that small batches of wine may sell out quickly so we welcome you to contact us about reserving your selections of upcoming releases.
Every person that we connect with through our winery is a partner and steward of Five Rows and we are forever appreciative of those who believed and invested in us through the wine. We invite all who have experienced our wine to register their unique bottle number and vintage release online with us - Here. This is simply a list of those individuals who have experienced our wine and the beginning of a long friendship through our craft.
