Kate Norris & Thomas Monroe

In our sixth collaboration, Proxies teamed up with winemakers Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe of Division Winemaking Company in Portland, Oregon.

A Note From Winemakers Kate Norris & Thomas Monroe

Having both spent many years now in the wine industry, the need for life balance has become increasingly important—not only for us personally, but for our friends in the beverage community and beyond. 

It is exciting to have some of the aspects we love so much about wine—the play and intrigue of flavor, acid and texture—represented in zero proof through Proxies, and an amazing and positive challenge and opportunity to be able to work on this project together, through the lens of our palates and style. 

Having that option to reach for a beverage that feels celebratory, thoughtful, artisanal and special while also having no alcohol feels not only inclusive, but also a way to help bring balance into our sphere. Something for all to enjoy at any time, together.

Love Kate & Thomas

About Cluster

Proxies and Division Winemaking Company share a pioneering spirit, bucking trends and breaking rules in favor of flavor. When we came together to work on a blend, the ideas flowed like glou glou—a Chenin-esque white, Oregonian icons Pinot and Chard, and a unique Perry the Division team crafted but once—from wine grapes and pears when Mother Nature delivered two harvests simultaneously—that was neither wine nor cider. Cluster, too, defies definition, but does not disappoint.

Perfect Pairing

Cluster’s complexity makes it a dream to pair. With fruit, spice and acidity all-but jumping out the glass, this blend is built to match with all the juicy sweetness and fiery spice of summer’s ripest bounty. Whatever you choose to cook, if you throw it on the grill for a hint of char, you’ll be singing all the way to the table.

Enjoy with tuna tataki, carne asada or a grilled peach and Comté salad, preferably vineyard adjacent at a post-harvest barbecue.

About Kate and Thomas

Changemakers and tastemakers Kate and Tom are part of the new guard of the modern American wine canon. While they learned the ancient art of oenology on Kate’s family’s vineyard in the Loire, France, they’ve eschewed many old world constraints. Their philosophy is simple: drink good things with good people. 

This extends to non-alcoholic drinks too. Kate and Tom believe non-alc will form the basis of inclusivity and help shape the future of drinking. Of course, we wholeheartedly agree.
