Radix Winery

Walla Walla, Washington

This is a story about finding and returning to one's roots. Marco De Santis' family has been making wine in Italy for generations and his great grandfather traveled from a small village in Central Italy to Tacoma, Washington in 1904 to work on the railroad. Marco then returned to his roots in Washington State 111 years later to dedicate part of his life to crafting ultra-premium wines that showcase the Red Mountain terroir.
