Born and raised amongst the uncanny bounty of the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, Jesse Skiles found himself with little choice but to explore and create with what life there provides. Although Jesse is a cook by heart and trade, a series of events in 2008 led him, almost by accident, to switch to crafting wines. From the beginning, Jesse’s wines have been driven by locale, climate, and cuisine, while also rooted in the traditions of the historic homeland of his profession, the Rhone Valley.
Fausse Piste crafts wines with Rhone varietals from across the Pacific Northwest. They believe in making authentic wines that are true to the vineyard, region, and climate, while never lowering their standards of production in the cellar and in the vineyards they work with. They strive to produce wines that are free of any additives in the cellar, apart from minimal SO2 after fermentation. The resulting creations are unmanipulated, food-friendly, natural wines with balance, reflective of both the terroir and the vintage.
