    Everybody has a story. Here is ours...
    For those of you who know us, you know about our passion for the beach and wine. Hopefully you have had the opportunity to walk along a beach to collect Seashells. During low tide the best and hardest to find shells are revealed. For those of you that still collect seashells, you are finding them harder to discover. For those of you looking for a great wine at a reasonable price, you might be finding that to be more difficult as well. We made the leap of owning a vineyard and producing a high quality, smooth, delicious wine. Walking through the full rows of vines, many of you will realize the beauty that compares similarly to that of the beach. And so, from this, the name Seashell was born. Seashell formation, as well as grape formation, is a reflection of the perfection, joy and beauty of our Creator.
    We are so happy to introduce our latest, Estate Grown, varietals of Sea Shell Cellars. In 2008, we were able to make our dream possible and we made the leap of owning a vineyard. We wish to share this new joy with you. Cheers...
