"There are a lot of technically correct wines that can be stylistically boring," says Ray Brasfield, owner and winemaker at Cygnus Wine Cellars. "Stylistically boring" isn't an accusation that could be leveled at him or his establishment, though. He pours artistry into every bottle of wine he makes, whether he's making a dry table wine to pair with cheese or coaxing sparkling champagne from locally grown grapes.
Even his venue, a one-time abandoned slaughterhouse, has a bit of character and edge. Plenty of elements of the 1939 architecture show through under the upgraded decor of the tasting room. The press room and other operational areas still look remarkably similar. Like Ray's wines, each space blends a bit of art and science.
