They say it all begins with the soil, the vine, and the grape. This is true for most, however at Troubadour Cellars, it all begins with the dance. The story of Troubadour Cellars begins, like only the best stories do.
Once upon a time in Las Vegas. It all began with a whirlwind, six-week long dance date between two UNLV students, Andy Byers and Beth Wellar. Both were unable to travel home to their families during the Christmas holidays and at the request of Beth’s beau, who was Andy’s roommate, the pair spent time together so Beth wouldn’t get lonely. How nice of Andy! They soon discovered a shared love of dancing and indulged in this passion for 43 straight nights at a small nightclub called, The Troubadour. With never a hand held or a cheek pecked, Andy and Beth spent those six weeks forming a bond and a friendship rooted firmly in a passion for fun. They’d dance the night away from 10 p.m. until 4 a.m., share a sunrise breakfast special, and then go their own way until 10 p.m. rolled around again. So tangible was their connection that the beau picked up on it upon his return to campus, and graciously stepped aside. Andy and Beth’s bond was strong, and it would soon turn into love and family, careers and children and they all lived happily ever after. Or at least 30 years until their new story can begin…
Now nearly 30 years later, with the help of our four sons we are channeling that passion and love into every bottle that Troubadour Cellars produces. We believe that wine, food, family, fun and music make the world go ’round, and there is nothing that embodies our belief like our wines. We are a family-owned and operated boutique winery, which specializes in small-lot Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Our family takes great care in hand-selecting the grapes that ultimately make it into our bottles. We take only the best the vineyard has to offer, resulting in wine that enchants the palette and intrigues the senses. What began as a love of dancing has evolved into a passion for wine making and living our lives to the fullest.
