Railsback Frères began as a rosé project in 2015 by brothers Lyle and Eric Railsback. They named their rosé “Les Rascasses” (scorpion fish in French) in tribute to Lulu Peyraud, proprietress of Domaine Tempier in Bandol - home of their favorite rosé in Provence. Lyle did National Sales for legendary French importer Kermit Lynch for twelve years before leaving to focus on this Santa Ynez project. His brother Eric started Lieu Dit wines in Santa Barbara, inspired by wines of the Loire valley, and owns Verve Wine shops in NYC, San Francisco and Chicago.
Roman Ceremony is a recent project from Railsback that began as a small project for a Michelin starred restaurant, though with its success grew to 1000 case production. Fruit comes from two vineyards suited to Bordeaux varieties with its gravelly loam and clay. The fruit was harvested early, yielding a more elegant style Cabernet. Though this bottle doesn’t reinstate the Provencal style of the other Railsback bottles, it earned a separate name inspired by the birthplace of wine.
