Winemaking from around the world comes together

A Mexican, a Frenchman, a Texan, and a Buckeye came together to make award-winning wines.

Sin Banderas was founded on a simple concept: a handful of friends from different places around the world that shared a passion for travel and the art of winemaking. The intention is to craft high quality, ultra-small batch wines that bring delight to both the nose and the palate. By keeping their quantity small, they are able to focus their energy on giving the maximum amount of care and attention to their craft, from hand-harvesting our grapes to using guaranteed TCA-free corks. 

 

This Rose made by Jacki Evans was awarded 'Best Rose by the Glass' and the 'Best Rose by the Bottle'. It's a great wine to order on a night out. 

This dry & fruity wine is made of syrah, mourvèdre, cinsault, and grenache.

This delicately off-dry rose is both sly and playful. Delicate pink hues are complimented generously by aromas of strawberry and tropical fruits. The palate opens with a shy tartness that evolves into a fruity yet florally forward rich experience, followed by a crisp and clean finish.

Jacki was born and bred in Texas and studied Biology at the University of Texas in Austin. She has over 10 years of winemaking experience with 15 harvests around the world, including Napa Valley of California, Willamette Valley of Oregon, the Great Southern of Western Australia, Barossa Valley of South Australia, Burgenland, Austria, and Marlborough, New Zealand.  During this time, she studied winemaking at Napa Valley College and whatever else she could get her hands on.  She's been in the Yakima Valley of Washington State making wine with Owen Roe Winery since the 2013 vintage.  Jacki loves wine, traveling, and all the good things in life.
