Our Motto is “Pairing Wine with People”

We like making blends, it’s our signature. We taste through the grapes we have available to us and put together the best wine we can make. From our first wine in 2014 we started blending red and white grapes together. That’s where our name comes from. Like a Syncopated rhythm in music, we match uncommon grapes together in our blend. Since that first blend, we’ve developed a white wine blend, a rosé, and an off-dry red and white blend.

We always try to stay true to the region, respect the grapes we are provided and tell a story through the taste of the wine. We rely on the vineyards to provide us with quality fruit, we count on our winemaking team to make great wines. We listen to our loyal customers and react to their comments. We always have food pairings in mind when we create our blends. We know that wine is a perfect match with food if made correctly. Nothing is more important to us than to pair Syncopation wine with people.

“ If you don't like red wine you need to try this, not your typical red. If you like red, you will definitely love this. ”

— Jamie LaBarge, CSW Schnucks Markets
