About Us

In the simplest of terms, Cantiga Wineworks is a small family winemaking operation. A closer look will reveal that it is also a tradition, a method, a science, an art, a philosophy, a community, and a way of life.

The venture, founded by Rich and Christine Rorden with the support of their family and friends, is an outgrowth of a long-time, multi-generation, home winery. It has the benefit of the Rorden family's many years of experience in making exceptional Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, and other varieties of fine wine. Upholding the same values and methods used to make the family's private stock, Cantiga Wineworks intends to make this wine of rare quality available to the fine wine enthusiasts of the local, US and, eventually, Canadian markets.

Who are we, then? We are a team of family and friends who happen to be artists, entrepreneurs, dreamers, business people, engineers, and–most importantly–wine lovers!
