Coquina Wines Eola-Amity Hills Trousseau is Dana and Nicole’s first red wine at Coquina and it is a beaut! Hand-harvested grapes were sorted and half were destemmed and fermentation was started with native yeasts. The other half went through whole cluster carbonic maceration before finishing fermentation. The two separate batches were combined and aged in neutral French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. The result is a bright and lively chillable red, with cranberry and strawberry fruit, subtle smoky minerality, and a bright finish.

About Coquina Wines

We first met Dana Benn and Nicole Staples of Coquina Wines when they walked into our store about two years ago. They were down here on vacation and told us about the winery they starting in Oregon. Intrigued, we told them to let us know when they would be available. Well looky here, we finally have their wines in the shop and our wine club gets the first shot at these two offerings.

Dana and Nicole’s initial partnership began in 2014 at Kosta Browne Winery in Sebastopol, California, where they helped craft award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The pair quickly bonded over their Floridian upbringings and unusual paths to the world of wine. In 2018, they moved across the hill to work as cellar master and enologist, respectively, at Napa’s Realm Cellars. Their roles at Realm represented winemaking from two key viewpoints and each position required a mind meant for details and multi-tasking. And the two loved refining the wines and their processes in tandem. Yet, they kept dreaming of creating a brand and finding more time to enjoy life outside work. Then, on a fateful trip to the Willamette Valley in 2021, they discovered a vineyard worth leaping for. With the ambition to make something truly their own, Coquina Wines was born.

For Dana and Nicole, it’s all about balance: seeking the equilibrium between winemaker and vineyard, how much to intervene versus how much to let Mother Nature take the wheel. Coquina is not only an expression of their winemaking style but also their desire to find the center in life between hard work and pleasure. Their diligence in the cellar translates to a delicious wine designed to be enjoyed now.
