Corvidae is Owen Roe's value-driven second label. Much of the fruit for Corvidae is sourced from Owen Roe's 280-acre Outlook Vineyard. David O'Reilly is meticulous in the winery and in the vineyard for both Owen Roe and Corvidae.
Corvidae is Latin for the crow family of birds, which are a common presence in the eastern Washington vineyards. 'Rook' references the legendary luck associated with crows. 'Lenore' is named for Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven.' 'Mirth' refers to an old nursery rhyme about magpies. More wines in the series will be named for other references to crows in folklore.
