Upstream Wines was started to give an awareness of our natural waterways. Even in the most developed areas, natural waterways are some of the last natural habitats still present. Birds, reptiles, fish, mammalians are just a few of the species that would not exist without waterways being in their natural state. We pride ourselves in bringing awareness and respect for preservation of our natural waterways.
Owner, Craig Watts, is especially close to the rivers. After graduating college, Craig worked as a biologist on the Mokelumne River tracking Salmon and also worked the Poke River preserving fish for the Bald Eagles. Playing such an important part in Craig’s life, the rivers are still where he turns to for the soul.
