Corvidae Wine Company, part of Owen Roe Winery, is named for the family of birds that includes crows and ravens. Crows have a long history in folklore and mythology. David was inspired to name the label Corvidae by the many crows that circle the sky over his winery in Yakima.
Owen Roe does it again. Like their other value labels - Sharecroppers, O'Reilly's, Northwest Vine Project, Murphy's Law, - Corvidae packs a punch. The Corvidae wines are as big and delicious as Owen Roe's, ready to drink and enjoy.
Each Corvidae wine is named with a particular fairy tale, fable, or legend in mind. "Rook" references the legendary luck associated with crows. "Lenore" is named for Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven". "Fable" is inspired by the story of the fox and the crow and its moral- "Beware of Flatterers". "Mirth" refers to an old nursery rhyme about magpies. More wines in the series will be named for other references to crows in folklore.
More About Corvidae Wine
Ravens and crows belong to the "Corvidae" or "Crow" family name of birds. The Corvidae classification also includes Magpies, Bluejays, Jackdaws, Rooks, Nutcrackers, and several others... over 100 different types of bird. Members of the Corvidae family are all considered very intelligent birds. They are known for their inventive (and often mischievious) ways, their playful personalities, and their raucous calls.
Corvidae's wines all sell for under $20 and are made from Washington State and Oregon grapes. Like Owen Roe's other great value labels (O'Reilly, Sharecroppers, Northwest Vine Project, Red Splendor), Corvidae wines are big, rich, crowd-pleasers.
Perhaps the most famous Corvidae is the raven in Edgar Allan Poe's poem, Poe's signature work.
