Discover Frichette on Red Mountain with the new three bottle Starter Pack

Our wine story started with a flip of a coin and knocking on doors.

We’re Greg and Shae Frichette and in 2010, we went on an adventure in search of a career that would give us goosebumps. Although we left where we’d move to fate (flip of a coin), we choose to start a life in agriculture on Red Mountain. Since there were no properties for sale in the small Red Mountain area, we knocked on doors asking people if they’d sell their properties to us. After dozens of no’s one property owner finally said yes. And that’s how we got our small slice of Red Mountain. We’ve made Red Mountain AVA our home and make 3,000 cases of wine annually, most sold to our wine club and new fans.

We love new fans and hope you enjoy our three bottle Starter Kit. We selected these specific wines because they show our signature style in winemaking, which is dry, fruit-driven, medium body wines with assertive tannin. These wines can be enjoyed as soon as you receive them or you can store them in a dark, cool space for up to five years.

We appreciate that you are choosing to try Frichette and hope you come along with us in our wine exploration.

Cheers!
Greg & Shae


Let us introduce you to the Starter Pack wines

2018 Red Mountain Merlot

This Merlot is Shae’s personal pick.

“Merlot from Red Mountain is one of my favorites to make. It’s the first red wine grape variety we pick for harvest and is the first to barrel. It’s consistent with beautiful ripe red fruits from fermentation to bottle.” This Merlot is a pure varietal, meaning only one type of grape was used to make this wine. It’s dry with soft tannins, light smoke from the barrel, and caramel on the finish.

Food pairing recommendation: Smoked gouda, Smoked cheddar bacon burger with red onion, Korean BBQ, Spaghetti with mushroom.

2018 Malbec

This Malbec is Greg’s personal pick.

“The Malbec is the spicy sister of the Merlot. It has similar fruit characteristics and spice.” The Malbec is dry, ripe red and dark cherry, blackberry, caramel, cedar, and peppercorn.

Food pairing recommendation: Carne Asada, spicy Thai beef dishes, lamb.

2018 Reserve

Greg and Shae’s pick…

Each vintage, we blend a wine we feel is the best representation of Frichette and Red Mountain. In 2018, we blended five varieties to create this special wine. The combination creates different layers of flavor and complexity. This is a dry, full-body wine with so many fruit characteristics, you’ll have to taste it to experience it.

Food pairing recommendation: Beef, Lamb, Salmon with a dark berry chutney, Portabella mushroom

“Hands down one of the best wine producers on Red Mountain. Their reds are very complex and none taste over manipulated or over-oaked. Their Bordeaux varietals can stand up to just about any Napa Bordeaux. Check them out!”
