Q&A with Robin Coolidge, Winemaker
What sets your business apart from your competition?
Wyandotte is a very relaxed, laid-back environment. Our motto is "You enter a customer, but leave a friend!" We want people to feel comfortable during their visit, and do our best to provide a comfortable place to learn about and enjoy a wine tasting or a glass of wine. We make a variety of wine styles from dry to sweet and red to white and even fruit wines. Our goal is that everyone who comes in can find something that they enjoy.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
Wyandotte was started in 1977 by a man who had a passion for making great wine. We purchased the winery in 2006 with the same passion. Our winemaker, Robin Coolidge, loves to make wine, but he loves it even more when people take the wine home and enjoy it with family and friends.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Too many people get too wrapped up in the mystery of wine. Yes, it is a very complex beverage, and appreciating the subtle character in good wine takes time. But wine is really about enjoyment, about enhancing your time with family and friends. We try very hard to make sure that wine does not become intimidating. We spend time educating those that are new to wine and making sure they feel comfortable with a tasting. For those that are more experienced, we have wonderful wines that we are sure will satisfy a discriminating palate.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Our favorite reaction is having people come back again and again to enjoy our wine, or events, and our company.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Meeting new people and having them enjoy our wine!
