ABOUT RUSH CELLARS
WELCOME TO RUSH CELLARS
Founded by Alabama native Rush
Garner in 2005, the Rush Cellars project began with
the release of 728 cases of cabernet sauvignon from California to the Alabama
Today, some 20,000 cases later, Birmingham resident
Rush Garner has created an array of additional wines to compliment his flagship
Cabernet. The Rush Cellars portfolio now comprises a Chardonnay, Pinot Noir,
Sparkling, Pinot Grigio, and a red blend called the Olí Vine Red. Available
exclusively in Alabama, these handcrafted wines are made with the Southeast's
climate and accessibility to fresh Gulf seafood in mind.
There are other wines in the works so look for
this exciting brand at a store near you!
Born and raised in
resident, Rush Garner was exposed to
the world of fine wine and gourmet food by his late grandfather, Paul Garner.
During numerous trips throughout western Europe with his grandfather, Rush
tasted Spanish, French, Italian, German and Austrian wines with the various
local cuisine. Upon his return, Rush wanted to recreate that experience,
but all he found to drink with the local food was local wine that was sweet. When
he endeavored to make a wine for his home state, he decided to go to
to get the right grapes. The result is Rush Cellars, a brand made for Alabama wine drinkers!
The inaugural release of the Rush Cabernet Sauvignon was carried out in
partnership with winemaker Spencer Graham, of Elizabeth Spencer Wines. Since
then, Rush has partnered with several California winemakers to develop a particular
winemaking style that complements the warm Alabama climate and the fresh
seafood available to us from the Gulf.
In his white wines, Rush strives for a light, dry, crisp character with minerality
and a hint of citrus fruit. He crafts his red wines to be fruit-driven with
hints of oak and velvety tannins. Whichever wines you prefer, outstanding value
is what defines this locally owned brand. The wines of Rush Cellars are
available for $15 per bottle at your local retail shop. If you donít see Rush Cellars
where you shop, ask the store manager to contact us.
