About La Randonnée: Kevin and his wife Clodagh began La Randonnée with the 2014 vintage, after Kevin had worked in the Oregon wine industry for 10 years and honed his craft in Burgundy and New Zealand. Kevin’s interest in wine making evolved from a love of the land inherited from both of his parents, who came from farming families in Iowa. Striving for the perfect blend between earth, art and science, Kevin is focused on balancing his technical skills with his artistic, creative side. An outspoken proponent of environmental preservation and recycling, Kevin sources as much of the fruit used in La Randonnée wines from 3rd-party certified sustainable vineyards. At this time, La Randonnée wines are both LIVE certified and produced from Food Alliance Certified grapes. Production is focused on a limited number of wines, with only 200-300 cases produced in a vintage. Kevin continues to experiment with natural wine making techniques. La Randonnée is French for a hike or a trek, but genuinely comes from Kevin’s life path. An independent series of decisions throughout his life have led to an adventurous journey full of creative opportunities. Kevin also met his wife Clodagh in a “Hill Walking” club in Ireland, and as a couple they have set their sights on roads less travelled, leading the creation of La Randonnée wines. Kevin & Clodagh invite you to “join them on their Randonnée” and hope that you enjoy their wines!
