Female entrepreneur, Betsy Hendershot, of Tulsa, OK took notice as her 4 year old Cock-a-Poo performed an ever familiar stretch as she was preparing to leave for her morning yoga class. It just so happened that she was actively searching for a name for a current project- a proprietary wine label that would set an example for quality wine at a value price in the boxed wine segment.
Downward Dog Wine is custom blended in the Downward Dog Cellars of Zillah, Washington. The five varietals and 2 blends all come from a single vineyard in the Columbia Valley AVA, Roza Hills Vineyard. The ripe and balanced flavors of Downward Dog wine are a result of the moderate temperatures found 1100-1300 feet above sea level in a southern sloping bowl that sits on the southern slope of Rattlesnake Hills.
To change the way people perceive boxed wine by producing wines that will exceed your expectations but not your budget. Our consumer understands the true benefits of wine in a box. Not only is it more friendly to our environment, it lasts longer on your counter (6 weeks longer) and one box can serve one person as conveniently as it can serve 20. Keep it, drink it, share it, serve it, gift it and even cook with it. Most importantly, enjoy it!

A beautiful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cab Franc, and Petit Verdot.
Perfectly medium bodied with aromas of black raspberry and dusty cocoa. Hints of vanilla, chocolate cherries, and an herbaceous sage component.
Ruby red grapefruit, white pepper, ripe strawberry and violets. Very light floral notes in this blend of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, and Gewürztraminer. Zesty acidity, ripe raspberry, subtle dried cherry and strawberry. Stunning.
Bouncy black plum, vanilla, subtle leather, smoke and eucalyptus. Firm and masculine with chocolate truffle and stylistically perfect. Dusty tannins and brambly blackberries.
This day bright Chardonnay is 90% Chard and 10% Chenin Blanc. Smells of toasted brioche, baked golden apple and beeswax. Weighty enough for charm, but otherwise lean with a creamy front but also quite clean. Subtle hints of caramel corn. Fantastically balanced.
The glimmering deep ruby color of this Merlot comes from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc. Juicy plum, black cherry and very fragrant lavender. Smooth and velvety blackberry with a hint of fennel.
Aromas of ripe stone fruit, green apple, and Bartlett pear elegantly dance with notes of spice, orange blossom, and honey suckle. Juicy wine character bursts on the palate. Medium-bodied, with a dry and lengthy finish. Intricate, yet beautifully simplistic.
This radiant Sauvignon Blanc explodes out of the glass with aromas of tropical fruit, ruby red grapefruit, and lemon curd. Minerality abounds with a nod to wet stones after a morning rain. Vibrant and crisp acidity refreshes the palate – the perfect wine for seconds. And thirds.
