Frichette Winery Celebrates Three Year Anniversary in the Red Mountain AVA

Time flies when you are having fun! We are celebrating three years of sharing our wines and operating our tasting room in the Red Mountain AVA. Three years ago, I was sharing with Greg how excited and nervous I was to tell our story for the first time to our first guests, to pour our wines and witness the reaction of others and to experience running our tasting room. In the midst of this dialogue, my father in law was behind us capturing this moment.

Within the hour of opening our doors, our first guests arrived, excited to try our wines. And we were equally thrilled to share our first vintage with them.

Over the course of three years, we’ve had a few thousand feet walk through our doors, taste and purchase our wines and experience Frichette Winery. Here are some of our milestones and favorite events:

One faux proposal – surprise wedding


Thanks @nicole_hoerner for taking this great shot of the very first wedding at our place! Congratulations to @teresadoesit & Carlos! ・・・ Reminiscing about the day I thought I took part in a *huge secret* with these two… Having zero idea that after six months of plotting and scheming, they’d have managed to pull off a super secret wedding that surprised everyone yesterday! My heart feels insanely full to have been included in your special days!! Love you both! 😘💚 #frichettewinery #mendozawedding #tricksters #theknot

We are very excited about the journey and adventure in wine, the opportunity to work and live in a great industry and for the future of Frichette. We are grateful to our wine club members, fans and supporters for joining us in this walk. We’ll continue to do our best to make great wine, provide a stellar experience and create Edutainment experiences to remember. Here’s to many, many more years of celebrations. Cheers!
