Kara and Wayne met in Central Park through their dogs Bella and Ty (the physical embodiment of the Meanmouth!).  Not long afterwards, they moved west to pursue their passion for wine. 

And so it evolved….

Today, Hard Six Cellars is a fueled by a vision of winemaking that puts the land first.  Jess, Keisha & Maya are often also present, earning us the nickname “Los Lobos” amongst the vineyard workers.

Kara and Wayne have a mutual appreciation for abstract and “outsider” art.  The works chosen for the Hard Six labels have enormous depth and are extremely evocative, risky and captivating in nature.  It is our hope that our wines will resonate with you in the same way.

There's risk involved in choosing vineyards that are more challenging, but that's what Hard Six connotes - a high risk, high reward proposition. We're passionate believers in our efforts. Sometimes this means a passionate debate or two along the way...but always over a glass of wine, of course.
