Outward Wines is a partnership between Natalie Siddique and Ryan Pace. They first met on the walls of a rock climbing gym in San Luis Obispo, California in 2014, where their relationship bloomed while out on incredible climbing adventures together. Ryan, who was born and bred in the wine industry sparked Natalie’s fascination with wine with an aged bottle of Nicolas Joly Chenin Blanc, and the rest is history. Fortunately, many of the world’s greatest wine regions also happen to be some of the best climbing destinations, and their years together since have been distinctly defined by exploring both. Outward was born in 2015 and focuses on making small volumes of site-specific wines from coastal vineyards in California. Outward embodies a mutual love for adventures in the outdoors, and simultaneously represents the concept of expression, exploration, and a sense of stepping into unknown territory through wine.
