Call them what you like – desire lines, social trails, cow paths, pirate paths, kemonomichi (beast trails), chemins de l’âne (donkey paths), Olifantenpad (elephant trails) – each represents the natural course of evolution, of user experience over design, a cumulative creation of collective intelligence. Desire lines are unofficial routes, formed over time as the people traversing a space reject the designated paths in favor of a path all their own.


Desire Lines Wine Co. is the path that we’ve chosen - we make a small amount of wine from amazing vineyards all over the Golden Coast, our adopted home state of California. Our wines are released to our mailing list by allocation. Please sign up for our mailing list and thank you for visiting our website! —Cody and Emily Rasmussen
