Welcome to the Más Allá family. We invite you to share in our love of wine and its rich history. We produce wines made from environmentally-friendly vineyards and use low-intervention wine-making techniques. We focus our attention on the magic that happens in vineyards, doing justice to each varietal from root to fruit, bringing you wines that showcase each grape’s unique character.
Más Allá started as a dream that my husband, Jordan, and I shared. The dream became reality when I decided to jump in head first, leaving my former life as a high school English teacher. We’re just getting started on what should be our greatest adventure and we look forward to our future in the wine world. While we don’t have our own production facility or tasting room just yet, Más Allá will begin its story as a platform to lift up organic and biodynamic vineyards and partner with and highlight our talented wine-making friends. Together we are creating wines that we personally love to drink – styles and varietals that deserve more recognition and that excite fellow wine lovers and newcomers alike.
At Más Allá, we believe that each bottle tells a story of the past for everyone to enjoy as they look forward to the future. In our attempt to honor the past and celebrate the future, our name, Más Allá, says it all. Más Allá is the Spanish translation of the Latin phrase “Plus Ultra,” meaning “further beyond.” The full phrase, “Non Plus Ultra” is inscribed at the Pillars of Hercules at the entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar, which at the time of antiquity was the westernmost point in the world. It warned travelers that there was “nothing further beyond” that point. After the discovery of the New World, Spain changed its national motto to “Plus Ultra” commemorating the expansion of the known world. Likewise, we embrace the spirit of Más Allá, and strive to bring you wines that are classically styled and naturally made. A celebration for the best of the old world and the promises of the new. From our family to yours – together, beyond.
