What’s In A Name?

Happy Tuesday! One week anniversary for being up and running! Is this the one where we get gold bars from our followers or is that 50 years? We forget but either way, please no stock right now!

Several people have written in asking what ‘MSix’ means and it’s significance to us as a company. Today, we will break it down for you.

Wine is thought to have first been discovered around the year 6000 B.C. near modern-day Georgia. Being a big fan of Greek and Roman mythology, Roman numerals have always interested us when brainstorming our development. So, we started dabbling with Roman numerals and discovered that the number ‘6000’ is written as ‘MMMMMM’. Six M’s. A little word jumble later and ‘MSix’ came out of the wood works. The name itself coincides perfectly with our winemaking philosophy of a hands-off, minimalistic approach – much like how wine was made in the Old World. We are here to craft a wine, not create it; allow the wine to come into it’s own rather than force the issue and sacrifice quality. There is an art of winemaking that is often lost in the corporate pressure to push brands and get wine out the door as fast as possible. In America, wine is simply a business. In well-established, wine-producing European countries, its a way of life.

Here at MSix, our goal is to find the lost art of making wine with heart and passion, establish it as our company’s way of life and use it to craft a wine we are proud to share with those around us. Simple as that.

Pictures from the vineyards later this week!
