About Purple Teeth Cellars
Marc and Jill Beck started Purple Teeth Cellars with the goal of convincing people that having purple teeth after drinking world class wine is a great thing and is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, we think that purple teeth should be celebrated and even flaunted whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Purple Teeth Cellars is currently focusing on Rhone-style varietals from California. By employing a combination of premium fruit from top vineyards and the best professional winemakers, Marc and Jill believe you will be proud to flash your purple teeth. Purple Teeth Cellars creates awesome wines for you to enjoy with other fun people in your lives. Our first release is still available - a Petite Sirah from Eaglepoint Ranch in Mendocino County. We have followed that up with two distinct Syrah options from Santa Barbara or Mendocino.
Marc and Jill are two veterans from corporate America and have always taken much pride in work ethic, integrity, enthusiasm and attention to detail. Throughout our tenure in situations that may resemble scenes in movies such as "Office Space" (particularly Jill), we never lost our deepest desire to have fun in whatever projects we have approached.
Purple Teeth Cellars looks forward to bringing that approach to you through the wines we create. Fun, friendship, and wine naturally go together. So smile and laugh because your teeth are purple!
