Life is Beautiful
When it comes down to it, Breathless Wines is a family affair, built by the love of three sisters, Sharon, Rebecca, and Cynthia, and the passion for life that their mother passed down to them.
The sisters, along with Breathless Winemaker Penny Gadd-Coster, are dedicated to sparkling winemaking in the traditional method, creating refreshing sparkling wines that pair well with life’s special moments. Breathless Sparkling Wines are hand-crafted from select Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes using the traditional French method, méthode champenoise, guided by the expert winemaking hand of Penny Gadd-Coster. Penny, recently named “Winemaker of the Year” by the North Bay Business Journal, is a renowned winemaker with 35 years of experience in sparkling winemaking.
The path to happiness and a sense of well-being resides in the simple act of savoring the little things, like a baby’s laugh; a loved-one’s smile; a fire softly burning; or warm bread, just out of the oven. Or even enjoying a glass of bubbles with a long-missed friend.
The woman on our label is a tribute to our Mother, Martha, and all the men and women who teach and remind us to take each breath we are given as a gift to be cherished.

This is the story of two friends, a baby blue Chevy van and a lifelong love affair with food. Sue Conley and Peggy Smith took a hippie trip to San Francisco in 1976 after finishing degrees at the University of Tennessee. Both established careers in some of San Francisco’s most famous kitchens: Peggy spending 17 years at Chez Panisse, and Sue co-owning Bette’s Oceanview Diner in Berkeley.
By the early 1990s, Peggy and Sue were ready for a new challenge. They found it in Pt. Reyes Station, a picturesque postage-stamp-of-a-town on the coast about an hour north of San Francisco. With their first-hand knowledge of the restaurant business, they launched Tomales Bay Foods, a marketing vehicle to help West Marin’s farms and dairies get their delicious products into the hands of the Bay Area’s finest chefs. Their first location, a renovated hay barn in downtown Point Reyes, featured a small cheesemaking room at the entrance to the building. It gave them ideas. Using milk from neighboring Straus Family Creamery, they began making delicious fresh cheeses.
Young & Yonder Spirits is an artisan craft distillery led by husband and wife team Joshua and Sarah Opatz.
The distillery is located in downtown Healdsburg, in the epicenter of world renown Sonoma County, California.
From grain to shelf, we belabor every detail for quality, and continually strive to innovate, trying out new, novel techniques, flavors and experimentations to create exceptional distilled products for all to enjoy.
We started the distillery out of our hobby and interest turned passion. We started learning about distilled spirits production while working in San Francisco, and decided after many years of debate to take the risk and pursue this entrepreneurial venture. We started the company in 2013 in a small warehouse space in Cloverdale, California, and then moved to a larger tasting room and production facility in Healdsburg in 2017.
We produce vodka, gin, bourbon, and absinthe, and are constantly experimenting with new ideas and products.
If you have any great ideas for us, don’t hesitate to reach out and share!
We hope that you’ll come visit us!!
