La Rata

A brief history

In the Chinese Zodiac, the rat has strong curiosity, a rich imagination and the willingness to try its hand at anything. So does Elizabeth Bourcier—a self-described "cellar rat" who, in 2012, created her first wine—La Rata.

While working since 2008 under the legendary guidance of Cayuse Vineyards founder and vigneron Christophe Baron, Elizabeth has learned much about crafting adventurous wines of elegance, style and class.
