Native American wine is made with the same caliber as other leading table wines with extra steps added to make it consistent with Native American culture. Tribal tradition and beliefs, such as stewardship of the land, sustainable farming, habitat protection, and water management, are followed to produce wine that embodies respect for the spirit of tribal ancestors and the hope for future generations.

Bill Tudor, Vice President of CBC BevCo, shares their brand vision: "The Twisted Cedar name honors the Cedar Band, one of the 5 Bands of the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah. An Elder of the Band blessed Mother Earth and the vineyard, that it would nourish and produce healthy vines, flavorful grapes, a bountiful harvest, and the finest of wines. The Twisted Cedar wines are a tribute to a proud people. We are honored to offer these wines for your enjoyment."

CBC BevCo, D.B.A. Twisted Cedar Native American Wine is the official wine sponsor for the Council's 2017 Annual Awards Dinner & Silent Auction on March 9th at the DoubleTree Southcenter.  Dinner guests will have the opportunity to celebrate this year's award winners and nominees with Native American wine that is produced with the highest respect for the land, responsible energy use, and a desire to make the best and most environmentally friendly wine possible.

CBC BevCo is a Certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Sustainably Farmed and Green Certified by Lodi Rules Sustainable Wine Growing.
